Rainforest Trust’s Chief Philanthropy Officer, Leslie VanSant, recently sat down with Great.com to discuss how collaborative conservation efforts like ours are the most effective way to save the rainforests and preserve the world’s rarest wildlife.
Each day, we witness deforestation fragmenting the planet’s habitats and severing the fibers of our global ecosystem. For over 30 years, Rainforest Trust has held steadfast in our mission to conserve the Earth’s surface through the creation of protected areas with local partners. So far, we have safeguarded over 24.7 million acres and we are fully committed to the 30 by 30 plan–– protecting 30% of the earth’s surface by 2030.
The interview is featured on the podcast “Great.com Talks With…” and is available November 2. Conversations like these are critical to spread awareness about the importance of conservation and to educate us on how we can all work together to create a healthy future for the planet.
