Robert Marc Lehmann protects ancient forests
Robert Marc Lehmann is a marine biologist, research diver and adventurer. The passionate conservationist, award-winning wildlife photographer and filmmaker is working closely with Wilderness International since 2020 in order to compensate the carbon footprint of his media productions and projects by protecting primary rainforests.
Part of this is his book “Mission Erde” ('Mission Earth'): For every book sold, Robert protects 1m2 of rainforest in Peru, thereby preserving an area of 12 000 m2 of coherent intact rainforest as habitat for an incredible biodiversity for all future.
Added to that, every one of his calendars for 2022 will protect 1m2 of precious Amazon rainforest. And in the future, more products and events such as his podcasts, tshirts and student climate conferences will follow in protecting many thousand square meters of ancient forest. At the moment, we are also working on a carbon footprint calculator for the media sector with Robert. Moreover, Robert is voluntarily active at Wilderness International and supports us with his scientific expertise.

Mission Erde e.V.
Robert Marc Lehmann is on a mission: to preserve our Earth with its unique flaura and fauna - his "Mission Earth". The marine biologist, photographer and conservationist travels around the world to save wildlife and fight environmental crime.
In this book he takes us with him on emotional whale rescues, dangerous turtle and reptile liberations in the jungle as well as other extreme missions where he tries to interfere with people who are destroying our Earth. He shows how serious the situations is, makes us witnesses of the dramatic things that are happening on our planet, and explains what we need to do now and what every single one of us can do to take action.
He makes us hope that not all is lost - because the Earth is worth fighting for it!
