Tony Rinaudo is an Australian agronomist widely known as the “forest maker”. He's lived and worked in Africa for decades where he put into a forest restoration practice called Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR).
FMNR has restored 6,000,000 hectares of land and over 200 million trees in Niger, vastly improving the livelihood of millions. Today, Nature N8 and Tony talk about inspiration, life’s purpose, making a difference, and hope.

- Two books that made a difference in Tony’s life: “I Planted Trees” and “Sahara Conquest” by Richard St. Barbe Baker.
