Rebecca Spindler is a passionate conservationist that works for the NGO Bush Heritage Australia whose mission it is to protect land from deforestation and raise awareness for the effects of land clearing for the Australian habitat. The organisation WWF has estimated that with the current deforestation rates the koala will be extinct in the state of New South Wales around the year 2050.
On this episode Rebecca shares her path to becoming an advocate for this matter and what can be done to preserve Australia´s forests and why we have to protect these areas from extinction.
