Congratulations to Daniel and William Clarke, winners of the Environmental Medal, part of the Pride of Australia NSW and ACT program announced today.
Daniel Clarke suffers from cerebral palsy but it hasn’t stopped from him from striving to fulfil his dream of saving the natural habitat of the orang-utans of Borneo. His little brother William has joined Daniel on the crusade and have already raised $600,000 on the way to a goal of $1 million. They created their own book Tears In The Jungle, which is being used as a study resource in many NSW schools. They have lobbied politicians and appeared on TV programs. They are also working towards addressing the United Nations
The boys attended the launch of the Wildlife Asia appeal for The Orangutan Project at Taronga on 7 August. Tax deductible donations to the appeal can be made at the Wildlife Asia website.
