Cool Causes

Albatross Conservation - Robert Cushman Murphy once famously said: "I have joined a higher band of mortals for I have now seen the

albatross."  Anyone who has seen the giant Wandering Albatross sweep effortlessly in 40 knot winds across the vast expanses of the

Southern Ocean or heard the call of the gorgeous Light-Mantled Sooty Albatross from a cliff-top in South Georgia will know exactly what Mr

Murphy meant.

South Georgia Habitat Restoration (rat eradication project) - sponsor a hectare and help restore habitat for the remarkable bird life of South

Georgia.

Fred Hollows Foundation - There is no greater gift than restoring preventable blindness.  The Fred Hollows Foundation works to prevent

unnecessary blindness.  Remarkably the Foundation has restored sight to over 1 million people since its inception.

Transparency International - For a world in which government, politics, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of

corruption.
