Running for the environment

Dear supporters,

My name is Stephanie Ong and I am running the Hamburg Marathon on April 23rd 2017 to raise money for the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA). Since Hamburg is my hometown, this event will be very special for me. I believe it is a rare opportunity to run for a cause dear to my heart.

The EIA is an independent NGO that works around the world to expose and put an end to environmental crime, including the illegal trade of endangered species and illegal logging in South East Asia. For over 30 years, they have been working strategically, obtaining evidence through carefully planned and often difficult undercover investigations. Combined with scientific documentation and representation at international conventions, the EIA raises awareness to advocate for policy reform.

A few years ago, I gained my first insight into the world of environmental activism when I travelled to one of the most heavily deforested parts of Indonesia (Central Kalimantan on the Borneo Island) where illegal logging was opening up land for palm oil plantations. This was where I personally encountered the brave work of a former partner organization of the EIA, called the Telapak Association. With tireless dedication they defended Indigenous land and sacred forests from illegal land grabbing by palm oil corporations to confront the social inequalities caused by environmental crime. It takes a lot of courage to do the work that others shy away from, so I truly believe that they deserve our support.

Together we can help them continue build the capacity to create meaningful change. The funds raised will go into investigations and effective campaigns to protect wildlife and sensitive ecosystems. I would be very grateful if you could help me support the EIA. Every donation, no matter how large or small will go a long way.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page!
