JOHN OSMOND TO CLIMB KILIMANJARO FOR AFRICAN BLACKWOOD

kilimanjaro1233005352John Osmond, Director of the Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA), is climbing Kilimanjaro in January 2010 in support of the Mpingo Conservation Project in southern Tanzania.

John’s Kilimanjaro climb is a part of the IWA’s commitment to a new project called Rainforest – the Size of Wales.

An area “the size of Wales” is frequently used to emphasise how fast forest is being lost.

Through Rainforest – the Size of Wales, the IWA is turning this on its head and urging Wales, as a nation, to protect forests in Africa.

As much as 15-20 per cent of carbon emissions are from forest loss.

You can support this initiative by making a donation online to Environment Africa Trust.
