Help us prevent deforestation
More than 50% of our world’s tropical forests have been lost to rampant deforestation for logging, mining and agriculture.
Habitat relied upon by countless species is wiped out. The homes and livelihoods of millions of Indigenous communities are threatened. Millions of tons of stored carbon are released, disrupting our already fragile climate.
This destruction spotlights the importance of Rainforest Trust’s mission of over 30 years: to take the first and most critical step in halting deforestation by working with local partners to safeguard forests as protected areas.
