Portrait Session: James Stanton-Cooke (Environmentalist)
In this episode, I’m back in Sydney chatting with James Stanton-Cooke aka Jimmy HalfCut. Having been an optimistic environmentalist ever since he could remember, James and is his partner Jess travelled to South America in 2011 to volunteer in the conservation work of the Amazon Rainforest. Seeing the continued destruction of the environment, wildlife and local communities, they wanted to help raise awareness and funds to support conservation efforts. With 50% of the world’s forests gone, HalfCut was created to empower people to take action on global deforestation by cutting half the forests on their face, sparking a conversation and raising money to protect our rainforests.
I know all this environmental news could leave us feeling hopeless sometimes, but this episode with James gave me hope. There are solutions out there and I’m proud to be sharing some of them with you on this podcast.
