The Amazon Conservation Team names journalist and environmentalist Lisa Ling as celebrity ambassador for protecting the Amazon

The Amazon Conservation Team (ACT) is excited to announce that acclaimed journalist and television host Lisa Ling is lending her voice to help save the Amazon by joining our team and becoming an ambassador for ACT!

Ling hopes that her role as an ambassador will raise awareness about the plight of indigenous people of the Amazon, including uncontacted tribes, and help ACT spread their message of the importance of protecting South America’s remaining rainforests from further destruction and deforestation.

"I'm honored and humbled to be an ambassador for the Amazon Conservation Team, a team that is making great strides in saving the planet,” says the award-winning journalist.

For her part, the new ACT ambassador is launching a video to help raise awareness and funding needed to preserve the Amazon’s rainforest. Please watch it here.
