Hug 100 Trees To Save The Rainforests!
Trees are essential for all life on our planet. Rainforests provide habitat for over 50% of all the species on Earth, and safely store hundreds of billions of tonnes of carbon, helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Put simply, we couldn’t survive without trees – so why not show them some love and Hug 100 Trees for the rainforests!
Hug 100 Trees is a fun, family-friendly way to connect with nature near your home – and support rainforest protection at the same time. It’s also a great way for kids of all ages to get close to nature and play their part in protecting our planet! You can hug any trees you like – in your local park, a nearby woodland, a beautiful forest, your garden, even in the street! You can hug all your 100 trees on the same day, or spread your tree-hugging over days or weeks. The only rule is that you must hug 100 different trees! To see some of our tree-huggers in action, scroll down and click on the video.

Michaela Strachan Supports Hug 100 Trees
Springwatch presenter Michaela Strachan is asking people across the UK to help save the rainforests and fight climate change by hugging 100 trees for Rainforest Trust UK. “The natural environment has been such a huge source of comfort and brought so many of us peace and calm in our recent uncertain and chaotic lives,” says Michaela. “It’s time for us to give back, and what a great way to give back – raising money while giving hugs! So let’s get tree hugging for the planet!”
The Rainforest Climate Action Fund
All donations from our Hug 100 Trees campaign will be directed to our Rainforest Climate Action Fund, which protects our planet’s most threatened old-growth rainforests and other carbon-rich habitats. Raising money for this fund may be the most efficient way individuals can help fight climate change, and together we aim to permanently lock in 15 billion tonnes of carbon by 2025.
