Thun Supports Rainforest Initiative

Thun has recently made a donation of €3,500 to the German rainforest project ‘Mein Regenwald’, run by the non-profit organization ‘Chance e.V.’. Its mission is the protection and exploration of an 18,000-hectare (180km²) forest area in the Peruvian Andes. The Peruvian Forestry Authority has transferred the responsibility for this patch of tropical rainforest to Mein Regenwald so that the organization can sustain it as the country’s fifth-largest private nature reserve and support the neighbouring farming villages in sustainable development and their fight against poverty.
