Kudos.

We also need to stop deforestation and cut CO2 emissions so existing forests can survive.

Thank you. It was very interesting, and Dr Will Smits is obviously very passionate about his work at the foundation. This is the link to the lodge, and one can volunteer for their ongoing conservation programs.
