Hi all,

I have been checking this out and find it fascinating on how we can use old phones to potentially stop illegal deforestation of the rain forests, in both Africa and South America. This illegal logging speeds the extinction of endangered species and significantly adds to the effects of global climate change!  This ultimately effects every one of us as we share this planet with many other creatures all of which have a right to survive.  Take a moment to check it out and I think you’ll appreciate what these guys are trying to do. They can also use a little help to get this great project well and truly off the ground.  Great work guys and you’ve got my support!!!

Here is a an extract from their site – the project is supported by KICKSTARTER

See what Neil Young, Environmentalist, Musician, Inventor, has to say...

What is Rainforest Connection?

 

Rainforest Connection (RFCx) transforms recycled smartphones into autonomous, solar-powered listening devices that can detect and pinpoint signs of environmental destruction activity—such as chainsaws, gunshots and animal distress calls—at great distance.

Current detection systems rely on satellites which show rainforest destruction days or weeks too late. Our system provides  the world’s first real-time logging/poaching detection system. We can pinpoint deforestation activity the moment it begins, while simultaneously streaming the data openly and immediately to anyone around the world.

In late 2014,  web & mobile apps will be released to let backers stream the LIVE sounds of the rainforest in Africa and the AmazonJust click Play above to hear the sounds of the rainforest as captured by the RFCx system in Sumatra.

Habitat for Humanity

If you are wondering what is a good cause to get involved in why not take a look at Habitat for Humanity! There are local groups near by who are always looking for volunteers! you set your hours and choose the options that suit your qualifications or interest. Check out the site and look for a local group near you! I am going to take some photo’s and install some computers in my spare time. Hopefully I’ll see you at some of the events!

Do you want to find an organization or cause to get involved in? If you do this is a great place to start. With the new Google Earth app on VolunteerMatch.org you can search anywhere in the world!! You can zoom in on an area of interest and get details of the volunteer organizations for that area. If you see something you are passionate about, the rest is up to you. Please give it a try and tell you friends 🙂 Together we can make a difference!

This is fom an article in “TIME”, less plastic, less oil consumption! Give some up today!

The U.S. produced 28 Million tons of plastic waste in 2005 – 27 million tons of which ended up in landfills. Our food & water come wrapped in plastic.

It’s used in our phones and our computers, the cars we drive and the planes we ride in. But the infinitely adaptable substance has its dark side.
