Help unchop a tree

Help unchop a tree” is one component of Maya Lin's “What is Missing?” campaign, which honours the animals, birds and plants which are in danger of becoming extinct. This short film, which was launched last month at the “Friends of REDD” vip event in Copenhagen, highlights the urgent need to halt the decimation of the world’s rainforests for both climate and biodiversity reasons. Maya’s universal message about preventing deforestation and emotional connection to REDD make the video a unifying force among all REDD supporters.
