Only two months ago Sir David Attenborough launched the World Land Trust's "Christopher Parsons Rainforest Appeal". Chris Parsons, who died in 2002, was not only a Trustee of the WLT, but had been Head of the BBC Natural History Unit, and was the producer of David Attenborough's ground-breaking TV series "Life on Earth". Already over $30,000 has been raised to create a permanent memorial to Chris Parsons, by purchasing Rainforest in Ecuador. The forests purchased will be added to others in the Tapichalaca area Amazonian Ecuador, and provide habitat for numerous endangered species of birds and other wildlife. The area being preserved is believed to have one of the greatest concentrations of orchid species in the world -- with new species still being discovered. The WLT is hoping to add even more land to the reserve - a fitting memorial to the person whose work in TV has inspired so many people, all over the world. Donations can be made online through the WLT's secure server:
