A milestone in Rainforest Trust’s partnership with the Rainforest Site was reached last week as contributions from the online organization passed the $100,000 mark. Support from the Rainforest Site, which has been a Rainforest Trust partner since 2008, has helped protect thousands of acres of imperiled tropical forests. These acres have been instrumental in providing critical refuge for endangered animals like the Golden Poison frog and the Blue-throated macaw, among other fast-disappearing species.
The Rainforest Site, which is owned by GreaterGood.org, harnesses the internet’s potential in a simple way that makes protecting the environment as easy as a mouse click. By opening a link that includes advertisements from site sponsors, visitors generate advertising revenue which is then donated towards rainforest conservation. The Rainforest Site also supports Rainforest Trust by featuring buy-an-acre appeals that allow visitors to learn about current campaigns while donating to Rainforest Trust projects.
On reaching the $100,000 mark, Liz Baker, Executive Director of GreaterGood.org, said that, “GreaterGood.org is thrilled to partner with an organization whose good work makes such a real and meaningful impact for our planet. Rainforest Trust ensures protection for a diverse array of plant and animal life.”
