120 Acres Saved for Earth Day 2012

Thank you, thank you, thank you! In one short week Rainforest Trust donors sent in an amazing $6,000 in honor of Earth Day 2012. These donations have been matched, dollar for dollar, thanks to generous suport from Mystic Dreamer Art and our Board members, which means Rainforest Trust raised a total of $12,000, allowing us to purchase 120 acres throughout South America.

Rainforests are the richest places on earth holding the majority of the planet’s biodiversity. 25 of the richest biodiversity hotspots cover just 1.4% of the surface of the planet yet contain more than 60% of all terrestrial biodiversity.

We are losing these rainforests and species at an unprecedented rate due to the devastating effects of deforestation for timber, conversion to farmland, infrastructure projects, and mining.

Rainforest Trust works with local partners to purchase and protect these precious rainforests for just $100 per acre. This Earth Day, show you care by donating to Rainforest Trust to help us preserve rainforest acres.

Thanks to generous support from the Rainforest Trust Board and Ann Kruglak of Mystic Dreamer Art, any gift made during the week of Earth Day 2012 was matched, dollar for dollar, allowing each donation to double its impact! For every $100 donated, TWO acres were saved forever.
