Fur Fan Kate Moss Joins the 'No Fun Being Extinct' Campaign.

Notorious fur-lover Kate Moss is reportedly lending her support to designer Vivienne Westwood's No Fun Being Extinct campaign. The charity, which aims to stop the deforestation of the rainforest, seeks to raise $11.4 million over the next 18 months. Enter Westwood's fashionable pals, Kate, Lily Cole and Sadie Frost, who were recruited to raise funds for the cause.

The goal of the campaign is to support impoverished rainforest communities that have come to rely upon fees paid by logging companies. By helping to create other sustainable means of living in these areas, No Fun Being Extinct hopes to stop the logging business in its tracks and protect the Peruvian Amazon, Congo and Asian rainforest areas.

Although Kate's support of the campaign is commendable, the supermodel's well-documented love of fur (including a coat made of the threatened Lynx species) seems to contradict the charity's mission. Do you think Kate has turned a new leaf? Or is her love of animal skin distinct from her charitable contributions?
