Nearly one acre of forest is lost every second

37M+ ACRES SAVED

Healthy Forests. Healthy Planet.

In 2020, 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 of forests helped unleash a global pandemic and dumped 2.64 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. That’s more than double all annual vehicle emissions in the USA.

We must act now.

Take a stand for our planet and donate to our new Rainforest Climate Action Fund to support projects that protect forests which cost-effectively store and sequester vast quantities of carbon.

Donating to this fund may be the most efficient way to fight climate change right now. Together, we will work to permanently lock up 15 billion tons of carbon by 2025.

We cannot save the Earth without you. Donate today and join our fight to protect forests, keep carbon stored and create a healthier future for our planet and all who rely on it.

The RAINFOREST CLIMATE ACTION FUND will support high-impact projects like these.

 

BOLIVIA
Bolivia is ranked third in the world for forest loss, with the country’s Bajo Paragua forest as ground zero in the fight to save the Amazon Rainforest from logging, fire, and conversion to agriculture. To hold the line, Rainforest Trust and our partner, Fundación Natura Bolivia are working to create the San Ignacio and Concepcion Municipal Protected Areas, safeguarding the majority of this landscape – over 2 million acres of rich, old growth, lowland rainforest.

 

 

ECUADOR
Ecuador’s Chocó rainforest experiences the fastest deforestation rate in the country – less than 2% of the original vegetation remains. Rainforest Trust and our long-time partner, Fundación de Conservación Jocotoco, have an incredible opportunity to purchase 53,907 acres from two prominent logging companies and completely remove the practice from the Chocó forever.
