This is my video application to become one of ten project leaders for "Project Borneo 3d," a massive undertaking between Dutch conservationist Dr. Willie Smits, Orangutan Outreach, Virgo Productions, TakingITGlobal and other partners to bring awareness, and ultimately provide solutions to rampant deforestation in Borneo that is threatening unique wildlife, local communities and the global climate alike. The project takes place in the Sintang District of West Kalimantan, Indonesia, and includes large-scale sustainable economic development initiatives for the rural Dayak communities, tropical reforestation efforts on degraded land, and permanent sanctuary building for displaced orangutans. Please find out more about this pressing issue at www.deforestACTION.com and www.redapes.org, or by watching Dr. Willie Smits' inspiring TED talk at: http://www.ted.com/talks/willie_smits_restores_a_rainforest.html I'd be greatly honored to receive your vote on this video so that I may have the opportunity to work with the man that has long served as my single greatest role model. He is one of the few individuals truly doing what it takes to save whole species, ecosystems, and communities in Indonesia. The more votes my video receives, the greater my chances - so vote and spread far and wide to friends and family. Thanks everybody! {:(|) Sincerely, Steve
