1,600 trees to be planted in New Zealand


1,600 trees to be planted in New Zealand

Project Last Stand is pleased to announce that the heroic efforts of our volunteers at the Into The West Oscar Party in Hollywood, CA (a Lord of the Rings fan sponsored event) raised enough funds to plant 1,600 trees in New Zealand.

Our spokesperson, actor Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Purifiers, Spivs, Shooting Livien, ABC’s Lost), signed and donated a PLS t-shirt to the events charity auctions, while PLS volunteers organized the adoption of Entings (Sequoia saplings). All money raised at the event was donated to the Nga Uruora Kapiti Project an organization dedicated to the restoration of native forest habitats along the Kapiti Coast, north of Wellington, New Zealand. They are currently planting trees and restoring native bush between Paekakariki and Pukerua Bay.

“We are cutting down the equivalent of eleven football pitches of rainforest a day that is not being replaced. When I was told this, I was completely horrified.”

- Dominic Monaghan

Project Last Stand supports the Nga Uruora Kapiti Project and other groups who are actively buying unprotected forests, planting trees, and making a difference on the front lines around the world.

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
