‘Greenline Grooves’ is a fundraiser album for the Thin Green Line Foundation to raise awareness of the obstacles faced by Park Rangers, provision of training and equipment for rangers, as well as support for the widow and children of a murdered ranger.

Other artists contributing to the album include Gotye, Mia Dyson, John Butler Trio, Shane Howard, Jordie Lane, Xavier Rudd, Dan Sultan, Clair Bowditch, Archie Roach, Nikki Bomba and Ash Grunwald as well as the new song from Perkins.

“Without rangers, we would’ve lost the last 787 mountain gorillas 15 years ago. But they go on eight-day patrols with no map, no proper boots and no mosquito nets, so they not only fight heavily armed poachers, they sometimes die of malaria. They can go three months without getting paid. They are outnumbered and outgunned. But they are fighting the good fight,” says Sean Willmore – Founder Director of The Thin Green Line Federation and President of The International Rangers Foundation.

ALL proceeds (including record company and retail stockists such as JB Hi-Fi) go to training programs and support structures for the rangers.
