DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER recently presented Reiterwald(= riders’ forest), a unique environmental protection project in collaboration with WILDERNESS INTERNATIONAL.
“We want to protect an area of primeval forest as large as the Wacken festival forever”.
DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER and their community of fans want to permanently preserve 50.000 square meters of unique and irreplaceable wilderness, in an area as large as the entirety of Wacken Open Air festival. Tropical and temperate primary forest areas in Canada and Peru will be legally purchased by the environmental foundation and protected from deforestation. Fans can invest in a sponsorship and enter the display name #Reiterwald to become part of the fan movement for the preservation of these forests. Participants will receive a personalized sponsorship certificate with an aerial photo and geo-coordinates of the exact piece of forest and a donation receipt. They can track exactly which piece of unique wilderness has been preserved forever.
