Rainforest Concern partnership for Adventurion 3D-360 charitable efforts
It is with great pleasure that I announce my partnership with Rainforest Concern charity organisation to distribute a percentage of profits from any funds generated through this project to the Huaorani tribe, whom I have lived with, in the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador.
In 2010, I followed my childhood dream to travel to the Amazon rainforest and find out how I could help them save their land. On my epic journey, I immerse in their primitive way of life, hunting with warriors, gathering with the women and then, I was initiated into the tribe in the most royal way and married to a warrior to create an alliance in order to spread their message about protecting the Amazon from oil exploitation and deforestation. This lead to the greatest achievement of my life, becoming the youngest documentarian to make a first film in the Amazon, aged only 21. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and continues to travel and spread the message of the Huaorani through my experience with them.
In the jungle, upon reflection of all the challenges I encountered living in simplicity and witnessing the beauty of nature, I promised the tribe and myself that I would come back to help them. I made it my lifelong mission to continue efforts in spreading their message and even got a response from the President of Ecuador for my efforts. Then, one day, I conceived Adventurion 3D-360 and now, I want this to be a way to help them and fund their battle in protecting their land, or what remains of it.
“PROTECTING BIODIVERSITY WHILST WE STILL HAVE THE CHOICE”
Rainforest Concern was established in 1993 to protect threatened natural habitats, the biodiversity they contain and the indigenous people who still depend on them for their survival. At present the organisation has 18 conservation projects in 12 countries: Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Romania, Suriname, Costa Rica, Panama, India, Sri Lanka and Uganda. We work closely with local conservation organisations in these countries to protect rainforests.
Central to Rainforest Concern’s philosophy is the establishment of strong partnerships with small yet dynamic organisations in the countries where it operates. Such long-term partnerships have repeatedly shown to result in the continued success of projects.
