Join with Greenpeace to protect paradise

 

What’s happening?

There are as few as 400 Sumatran tigers left in Indonesia’s forests – and their time on earth is running out. Some companies are destroying their home for vast palm oil plantations and the global brands we know and love are not doing enough to keep their products forest friendly. Instead, they buy palm from producers and traders whose practices are threatening orangutans, elephants and tigers, disrupting communities and ravaging the Indonesian landscape.

Greenpeace’s efforts

Palm oil can be grown without destroying forests. We can make our favourite companies commit to No Deforestation policies and become tiger-friendly; and then push the government of Indonesia to strengthen forest protection. But this can only happen if we persuade the brands we love to become tiger friendly and remove forest destruction from their products. You have a right to know if tiger extinction is in the products you use every day and we want brands to live up to your standards.

Greenpeace are spreading the word to get our friends, culture makers and policy makers, to join us. Your voice is powerful.

  • There are solutions that don’t involve forest destruction. We want clean palm oil and we ask that our favourite brands listen to our voices.
  • We believe immediate action must be taken to stop habitat destruction finding its way into the products we love.
  • We have the right to know if our favourite products are linked to tiger extinction.

Supporting Greenpeace

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care agency providing services in Sydney, including the greater metropolitan areas, Central Coast and parts of the Hunter region of NSW, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in NSW, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families. PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

Have you considered fostering a young one? PRFC undertakes regular planning and evaluation and has a focus on personal development and training. We are always interested in hearing from those passionate about making a meaningful difference for a child in foster care or a family requiring assistance. If you would like to become a foster carer and join our team providing effective and meaningful care to children and young people, please contact us!

We also provide family contact services, and these specialize in contact supervision for children in out of home care with their parents and other significant family members.
