Shaving heads to save the planet

David Siddharth and Lloyd Falter have shaved their heads to raise funds for World Land Trust (WLT) and help save the planet, one acre of rainforest at a time.

“Hair grows back a lot quicker than trees do, so we’re sacrificing our roots to save those of the planet,” said Lloyd.

Lloyd and David have raised more than US$1,000, which will go towards protecting threatened habitat in Bolivia’s Beni Savanna, which faces threats from logging and cattle ranching.

WLT works in Bolivia with conservation partner Asociación Armonía, saving habitat for a host of threatened species such as the Blue-throated Macaw, which is classified as Critically Endangered.

The head shave took place on 28 August 2015.
