Tom Wheeler – How do you Fight for the Forest?

We hear from co-founder and executive director Tom Wheeler about how and why he does what he does….

‘After my daughter was born,  I shifted my energy from the corporate world to supporting Indigenous peoples and the protection of the environment. I did this as I believe that we’re in urgent need of a cultural / ecological revolution. One that can only happen if we start listening to those who still live in balance with the natural world.

I believe our destiny is bound together and our actions now, will define our collective future.  I fight for the forest by amplifying Indigenous voices, bringing together likeminded impact makers, and directing resources to the guardians of nature, who fight on the frontlines to protect the Amazon and all life within.  This is the legacy I want to leave for my daughter and the world’.
