Help stop illegal logging in the Amazon rainforest!,

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/topherwhit...

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.
