Dr Tony Juniper CBE

Environmental Campaigner, Writer, and Sustainability Advisor

Tony’s career is decorated with a host of environmental achievements, from leading a programme with Birdlife International preventing the extinction of critically endangered parrots, to contributing to legislation protecting the UK’s finest wildlife habitats. He truly is one of the most effective ‘doers’ Cool Earth has had the pleasure of working with.

Claudio Cardoso

Executive Chef, Sushisamba

Claudio is a culinary genius whose passion for food extends much further than his role at Sushisamba. Following a visit to the Asháninka partnership this year, Claudio developed an intricate menu of rainforest inspired dishes to raise awareness of Cool Earth's work. He is currently using his knowledge and skills to help Cool Earth's Peru team develop the nutrition programme in the Asháninka.  It's safe to say that Claudio has become one of our most passionate supporters.

“It’s not ‘saving the rainforest’ it’s actually about helping the people to save the rainforest […] and I think it’s the most special adventure that I ever had,” 

- Claudio Cardoso

"I'm determined every day to find unique ways to support organisations I’m close to, like Cool Earth. I know the work they do is some of the most important work there is,"
