Catherine Bearder MEP pedals for primates

Environmental campaigner and South East Lib Dem MEP Catherine Bearder is working in Europe to help protect the world’s primates.

The Great Apes Film Initiative (GAFI) used a pedal-powered projector to show the film in remote villages in Asia and Africa, without the need for electricity.

“Films are a powerful way to raise awareness of conservation problems”, said Catherine. “I wanted to get involved and help make people in Europe more aware of these issues, because extinction is not temporary, it’s forever!”
