FCER President Laurie Waller and Board Member Dr. Peter Raven Interviewed on Kelley & Cassandra LIVE
President Laurie Waller and FCER Board Member Dr. Peter Raven, who is President Emeritus of the Missouri Botanical Garden, were recently interviewed on the 1380 AM St. Louis radio show Kelley & Cassandra LIVE about the Children’s Eternal Rainforest, the importance of rainforests in our world and lives, and the value of individual action. Laurie Waller also highlighted a recent CER success – the CER Rangers’ capture of a longtime poacher:
“Protection of the rainforest is an ongoing challenge because it’s a daily persistent effort to protect what’s there, and we just had a wonderful breakthrough two days ago where after an eight year hunt for particularly persistent poacher he was finally caught. But it really never ends. Buying the land is just part of it, and then we have to protect it.”
