Nearly one acre of forest is lost every second
34M+ ACRES SAVED
The RAINFOREST CLIMATE ACTION FUND will support high-impact projects like these.
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’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.
Thanks to the generous support of our Board members and other supporters who cover all of our operating expenses, Rainforest Trust is able to allocate 100% of donations to conservation action. No board member receives financial benefit and our staff salaries are modest.
