Kenny Peavy, environmental educator and co-author of As If the Earth Matters is also a budding Malaysian rock star!

Last week Kenny's band Benchmarx raised over US$7000 for Oragutan Appeal UK - a group dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of Orangutans and the conservation of their habitat and a supporter of the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Sabah, Malaysia.

You can listen to an interview with Kenny here talking about his book, the importance of environmental education, and the fund raising rock show he was involved with.

For an incredible collection of fun-filled outdoor educational activities you can do with your kids, your class or your club, check out As If the Earth Matters.
