Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I will be riding from the full length of Great Britain in April. I think this is suitably epic to justify getting some sponsorship together. I know most people choose a very worthy cause such as Cancer Research, but I would like to raise money for World Land Trust for the following reasons:

* Thousands of species of plant are at risk from extinction due to habitat loss, with many thousands already gone. Habitat loss is far more pressing issue than climate change.

* These plants as well having intrinsic value as a species, may harbour vital biochemistry that could one day be used to cure our cancers or other diseases. (most of our pharmaceuticals are still based on chemicals from plants!)

*These plants and forests are essential for the survival of 'charismatic megafauna' (the big cuddly animals like orang-utans and tigers).
