On the 13th June 2021, I will be competing in the Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire event. This is a one day endurance triathlon consisting of 1.2 mile open water swim followed by 56 mile cycle and finishing with a half marathon (13.3 miles). For this event, my goal is to set a new personal best by completing the race in under 6 hours.
Rainforests capture a quarter of the world's carbon and contain 2/3 of all biodiversity, despite only covering 6% of the worlds land mass - once covering 14%.
With multiple countries declaring a climate emergency and the planet rapidly approaching the 1.5°C increase in average global temperature, the conservation of our rainforests has never been more paramount.
Cool Earth, a non-profit organisation, tackles climate change by working alongside and supporting rainforest communities to halt deforestation.
