In the midst of the worsening climate crisis, tropical deforestation is once again on the rise. In 2020 alone, the world lost over 30.1 million acres of tropical forest – an area larger than the state of Pennsylvania. That’s nearly an acre per second.
This rampant destruction dumped into our atmosphere 2.64 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide, more than double all annual vehicle emissions in the USA.
We must act now.
Take a stand for our planet this Earth Day and donate to our new Rainforest Climate Action Fund to support two projects that protect forests which cost-effectively store and sequester vast quantities of carbon.
