When you save one acre of rainforest, your contribution will fund land acquisition, legal fees, and security costs. This ensures that the saved acres will be protected as part of a designated land preserve. To commemorate your saved acre, you will receive a certificate documenting the number of acres you’ve helped to protect.
Healthy tropical ecosystems are imperative to maintaining our planet. Rainforests give us clean air to breathe, a stable climate, plants that produce medicine, and are home to thousands of animals, and people that depend on their protection for survival.
Tropical rainforests are the world’s richest and most productive ecosystems, containing half of all living species on the planet. Their value is incalculable. In addition to their sheer beauty, rainforests are a deterrent against the greenhouse effect, and they contain a genetically rich resource yet virtually untapped wealth of plants whose curative properties could benefit humankind.
At the present rate of tropical deforestation, the world's remaining tropical rainforests will vanish in just 30 years. By working together we can make a difference! Deforestation in the tropical areas of the world is following a course similar to the earlier clearing of the forests in Europe and North America, only advancing more rapidly. Today, more than 3 billion people live in the tropics alone, more than lived in the entire world in 1950.To provide food, wood, fuel and resources for the world's rapidly growing population, and to make room for the exploding tropical population, the world's tropical rainforests are literally disappearing
The global rate for deforestation is 32 million acres every year.
Rainforests are home to two-thirds of all living animal and plant species on the planet, with hundreds of millions of species still undiscovered.
Six million different species live in the world’s rainforests.
Rainforests are the world’s single biggest “carbon sink”, holding as much as 50% of the Earth’s carbon.
We focus on saving real acres of rainforest through protection. Each of our projects has been identified as crucial to preserving critical habitat for endangered species. And with your help, we can save them now.
