With the success of their recent Country NSW and ACT School Talk Tour Daniel and William have sponsored an additional 3,300 acres of Bornean rainforest through The Orangutan Project’s Safeguard Program.
This latest addition to their habitat protection initiative brings their total amount of habitat protected to just over 10,500 acres – WELL DONE BOYS !
“We know we can make a difference, we know we can save them, we just have to keep going”, William said.
Their school talk tour took them to Jervis Bay, Temora and then on to Canberra where they spoke at five schools in five days, covered over 2,200 km and presented to over 4,000 people about the orangutan and the destruction to their habitat.
The boys were also fortunate to meet with the United States of America Ambassador, Jeffrey Bleich, and his wife, Rebecca as well as an impromptu meeting with Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC CVO, the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia.
Their tour focus was their first ever book signing at Canberra’s largest bookstore, Paperchain Bookstore, which was highly successful and covered in Canberra’s newspapers.
And lastly, the trip would not have been possible without the generous assistance of Kia Motors Australia and Col Crawford Kia who loaned our family a beautiful Kia Grand Carnival which made the trip an absolute delight and enabled us to take additional books with us to make sure no-one missed out.
Thank you so much to everyone who helped make their tour as successful as the boys had hoped.
