Size of Wales hits £2 million target!!! - 01/03/2013

Size of Wales has hit its £2million forest target to secure a world first for Wales.

McLays' chosen charity, Size of Wales, has achieved its ambitious target of raising £2 million to help to protect 2 million hectares of tropical forest as part of its national response to climate change. Wales is the first country in the world to help protect an area of tropical forest equivalent to its size.

Size of Wales is now set to become a model for action around the world as other countries set their own forest protection targets: Denmark is considering launching a tropical forest initiative equivalent to its size (4 million hectares) and Ireland has launched the Size of Phoenix Park project as a first step in improving tropical forest protection. Size of Wales is encouraging all countries to consider setting up similar forest protection projects.

Congratulations from your partners at McLays!!
