Each day, an area of rainforest about half the size of Chicago, is lost to deforestation.

Habitat relied upon by countless species is destroyed. 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 reckless 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 tropical forests as protected areas.

Healthy Rainforests, Healthy Planet

Healthy rainforests are critical to a healthy planet. Creating protected areas is the most effective way to prevent deforestation, safeguard biodiversity, keep carbon stored safely away, and maintain the health of all species on our planet. Join our mission and donate today.

Saving real acres of rainforest

"The one process now going on that will take millions of years to correct is the loss of genetic and species diversity by the destruction of natural habitats. This is the folly our descendants are least likely to forgive us.”
