Jordan Kopp Presents his campaign to help save Mountain Gorillas Jordan Kopp Presents his campaign to help save Mountain Gorillas Presentation Transcript

  • Boulder Sustainable Energy Network MeetUp
    May 19, 2011
    Jordan Kopp
    The biggest threat to gorilla habitat is collecting wood for charcoal and the resulting deforestation. As you'll soon understand, solar energy is a seemingly great solution for creating a carbon negative alternative (perhaps a Renewable Energy Credit funded effort) for the people living near the Virunga National Park, where the gorillas live. Learn more about this effort and how to help protect gorilla habitat through sustainable energy.
