Dr. Jane Goodall has accepted our invitation to become the Patron of RAGES. This following a meeting in Sydney that we had with Jane on her 80th birthday tour of the world. We discussed a potential partnership with Rotary using RAGES and the JGI Roots & Shoots programme in Kenya. We are excited about the potential for this partnership in all of the 138 countries that Roots & Shoots operate in.
Dr.Jane Goodall signs the poster SAY NO! This poster will be the centrepiece of an upcoming campaign featuring Besuries and their wonderful music. Stay tuned for more signings.
“It is likely that some extinction is a consequence of world biological, climatological or systemic process beyond our immediate ability to control. However, extinctions caused by wanton greed, the harvesting of body parts for superstitious uses, and/or poaching for immediate needs can be stopped, particularly when the species at risk (particularly great cats, elephants, and rhinos) can be the focus of economic activity that generates income and livelihood through local stewardship.”
“This is a mission worthy of Rotary”. Jon Deisher
Jon Deisher was a member of the Rotary Club of Anchorage, Alaska (D5010) U.S.A.
Footnote Jon Deisher passed away today 16th February 2016. I will miss this man and his passion for wildlife.
