Hi everyone,

I wanted to share an important new project with you to stop massive illegal logging operations in the Amazon rainforest.

Rainforest Connection turns recycled smartphones into solar-powered listening devices that can detect and pinpoint signs of environmental destruction in real-time. By having this alert system in place, local rangers can immediately respond to and prevent illegal logging in the Amazon.

We are trying to reach our stretch funding goal of $195,000 on Kickstarter by next Tuesday, July 29th, which will enable us to partner with the Tembé indigenous people, who we are in contact with. Here is the campaign's page https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/topherwhite/rainforest-connection-phones-turned-to-forest-guar?ref=bloggers, and here's our website. http://rfcx.org

If you could help in any way - by making a donation or spreading the word anywhere you can - it would really help the project. We’re a small team and could use the help we can get!

Thanks for reading.
