Dr. Paul Salaman, Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Robert Ridgely, Honorary President, and Nichole Baker, Director of Donor Relations, are attending the open house tonight (July 18), 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at the Ed Newbold Wildlife Artist Store in the Economy Arcade of the Pike Place Market.
During the open house, 50% of all arts sales will be donated to WLT-US and their mission to purchase and protect threatened rainforests. In 2011, WLT-US saved 279,491 acres of critical rainforest habitat from Guatemala to Paraguay.
Newbold's gallery and his wildlife paintings have been a fixture at Seattle's famed Pike Place Market for more than 28 years. In his efforts to give back, Newbold has sponsored ads in the newspaper to increase awareness of the local extinction of the Common Nighthawk and published posters advocating the purchase of shade-grown coffee, among other charitable efforts.
WLT-US is a "click beneficiary" of The Rainforest Site. Photo shown of WLT-US site, courtesy of Robin Moore.
