One thought on “Lost rainforests in the media

  1. Don’t know if you are familiar with the photographer Simon Baxter?  You
    can find him on YouTube.  He has clearly discovered something very
    special on private land and while I don’t want him broadcasting its
    location, you may want to know of its existence.
