WWF Earth Hour dares the world to save the forests of Borneo

Posted on 08 February 2013  | 
As part of the WWF Earth Hour 2013 pledge to 'Dare the world to save our planet', the world's largest environmental campaign has turned its attention to help keep the Heart of Borneo off-limits to unsustainable development.

The Earth Hour online campaign is publicly urging hundreds of thousands of Earth Hour participants around the globe to sign-up to the WWF #SAVEHOB pledge before its annual EarthHour event at 8.30pm on March 23rd, 2013.

Switching off lights for an hour around the world, Earth Hour 2013 symbolises the public's environmental concern about the future of our planet. It is estimated to reach over 1.8 billion people across the globe, and is to be hosted in more than 7000 cities and towns in 152 countries worldwide.

Earth Hour's support in encouraging the world to take interest in the WWF HoB initiative is encouraging and inspiring.

In case you have missed this important pledge - please join us to keep the Heart of Borneo beating and keep it off-limits to unsustainable land development, off-limits to illegal logging, wildlife poachers,and harmful pollutants.

More than 1300 people have already added their voice to the SaveHoB Facebook app to help save the forests of Borneo.

We're aiming for 12,000 pledges by March 23, and you can help by signing up to the app to add your voice. We need fewer than 11,000 voices to complete the target.

Join with our HoB supporters Sir David Attenborough and Earth Hour ambassadors Nadya Hutagalung and Nugie to pledge your support and send a message to save the Heart of Borneo.
