Making a change to help save the orangutans
Written on Monday, 15 December 2014 18:28

What a year 2014 has been.    Downsized my house, my life and recycled almost everything I own via op shops, friends and strangers since I no longer needed all the ‘stuff’ I had accumulated over the years.  

I have experienced true freedom of not being a slave to a mortgage nor caring about keeping up with the Joneses. 

It also gave me the opportunity to take part in the Trans Borneo Challenge and finally see orangutans in the wild after spending so much of my working life campaigning to help save them, and the many other species under threat from our changing environment, from the safety of my desk.
