Jimmy Halfcut talks about how his childhood gave him the foundation to want to protect the environment, how the halfcut beard came about and his mission to save the Daintree. Find out more about Jimmy Halfcut below:
James Stanton-Cooke (aka Jimmy HalfCut) is an environmental activist. For over 20 years, he has spearheaded the movement for safer and healthier forests, wildlife, people, climate, our planet. He is an expert in activating people to take action on environmental issues and the climate emergency. His understanding of climate, forests, coal and gas, veganism, consumerism, threatened and endangered species, coral bleaching and more...it’s what he breathes. There is no switch off button, especially when he literally wears the issue on his face. 50% of the world's forests are destroyed, 50% of a plant species are extinct, 50% of the great barrier reef is bleached and accelerating, 50% of the arctic and glaciers have melted, 50% of all the food we consume ends up in landfill. Do you see why he is HalfCut? We are flipping a coin right now with our environment and our climate but the solutions are readily available. Come meet Jimmy, the positive disrupter as he engages us in conversation and direct action in a fun way!
