In this episode, I interview Maximo Bottaro. Maximo is the co-founder of ReForest Now, an NGO whose purpose is to grow and plant trees, and educate people about biodiversity and forests. Maximo’s knowledge of ecology is impressive. After studying science degrees and genetic research in rainforests, working for Greenpeace, Rainforest Rescue and Rainforest Trust, he’s decided to start his own enterprise, uninhibited. You will learn in this episode how the decrease in rainfall, the loss of biodiversity, the bushfires and climate change are all related, how planting trees can greatly help with all of these problems, and how rainforests play an important role in making it rain and distributing the water all around the planet.
