The Prince’s Rainforests Project

From the title of this post you must be thinking, “Rigby started a rainforest preservation group?”. Remember, Rigby is a boy princess*, the prince referred to in the title is an actual prince: Prince Charles.

In an effort to seek solutions to the destruction of the world’s tropical rainforests, Prince Charles has created The Rainforests Project. The organization — with part of their mission to make the trees worth more alive than dead — has just launched a new website to bring people together on the issue and relate all of the effort they are undertaking to make a difference.

And here’s an interesting angle: they’re not looking for money. Just support and a willingness from those visiting to tell others about the importance of the issue.

*Back when I worked for the Bozeman Recreation Department I took a group of 15 girls (ages 9-14) on a backpacking trip. Of course, Rigby came along despite the “NO BOYS ALLOWED” rule. In those days I called Rigby my “princess”. He didn’t care, but the girls did. So we compromised and decided to call him a “boy princess”.
