Save an Acre for $10

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. But over half of the world’s rainforests have already been destroyed, and a further 80,000 acres are lost every day.

At Rainforest Trust, the average cost of purchasing and protecting an acre of lush tropical rainforest is just $10.

That’s where you come in. When you choose to save an acre for $10, you are choosing to save endangered wildlife and to safeguard our planet.

We purchase and protect real acres in real places.

Since 1988, Rainforest Trust has helped to safeguard over 11 million acres with the help of all our supporters. And with your gift, we can do so much more.

What We Do

At Rainforest Trust, our innovative approach starts by strategically identifying the most threatened rainforests with endangered species. We then collaborate with a network of experienced local conservation partners to quickly purchase land for nature reserves or to create national parks – implementing real and lasting action by permanently protecting rainforests most at risk.

How Your $10 Helps

When you donate to Rainforest Trust’s Save-an-Acre program, every cent of your gift will support our most urgent conservation work. Because our Board of Directors and a few key supporters cover our operating expenses, we are able to direct 100% of your donation directly to conservation action.

How is it Possible to Purchase and Protect Acres for $10?

We averaged the cost per acre of all our current projects, and for $10, you can save one acre in the countries where we work. Whether we are purchasing acres to create reserves or establishing national parks, your gift will protect forests and wildlife in our most urgent project sites, transforming the future of our planet’s biodiversity.
