Richard Van Piljen is walking from Sydney to Perth in an effort to raise money to plant 1 million trees ! After watching a TV program about the plight of Australia's Koala population he decided to take matters into his own hands. He has teamed up with Landcare Australia to find suitable areas for planting the trees and sourcing the saplings. He cane be found on Insta @freewayricardo and if you see him walking along the highway , feel free to give him a big hoot of support.
