WWF: Report From the Amazon
That there is one of the brand new brazil nut storage barns (or ‘Payols’) that you guys made possible. You heard right, the project that you funded through the purchase of special WWF items in Flutter is well underway and already helping to support the Amazon communities of Lourdes and Tumbito.
Two of the total eight Payol’s are already in use with the further six under construction. These barns shield the local farmer’s sustainable crops from the elements, dramatically reducing spoilage, increasing revenue to the community, and helping them be a shining example of how sustainable farming is the future of the rainforest.
Think about that for a second. Because you guys cared about a sustainable future enough to actually put your money where your month is, now we can show you physical things that you’ve built in the real world Amazon Rainforest by playing in the virtual rainforest. Pretty special.
So a huge thanks to those that took part, and to the amazing people at WWF New Zealand and WWF Bolivia who helped us make this happen.
More where this came from, we’re just getting started!
