At the time of writing, we have raised over $7500 AUD to support Bob Brown Foundation’s crucial campaigns and activism work, and we are hugely grateful to everyone who’s now climbing on the limited edition DMM gear that enabled us to raise these funds. We are also blown away by the sheer number of campouts registered this year – it’s the most we’ve ever had and we all feel very moved by your messages, photos and videos. In one of the most challenging years most of us have ever experienced, seeing everyone come together for our precious, irreplaceable forest habitats is a true balm for the soul.
Being amongst the trees has a powerful effect on people. Going to the forest is like going home for us - a long distant memory that we can’t quite put our fingers on. We came down from the trees well over a million years ago but the feeling of being in the canopy lingers still in our genetic memory.
