OUR COMMITMENT TO BUILDING A BETTER WORLD
Rainforest Trust protects threatened tropical forests and endangered wildlife by partnering with local and community organizations in and around vulnerable areas. The Rainforest Trust partnership-based approach ensures the long-term protection of tropical ecosystems and the wildlife they hold. They support projects throughout Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia. Healthy tropical ecosystems are imperative to maintaining a healthy planet, and it’s up to us to save them. Rainforests safely store billions of tons of carbon, helping ward off climate change. They also remain untapped resources for scientific and medical discoveries, as a quarter of all medicines are sourced from plants found deep in the rainforests. Rainforests are also home to more than 50% of the biodiversity on the planet, including endangered species that depend on safeguarded habitats to survive. What makes Rainforest Trust unique is that they are dedicated to engaging local partners, who share in our commitment to preserving species and protecting the land. Rainforest Trust finds solutions to preserve habitat for all endangered species, not just the photogenic ones. Without Rainforest Trust, surely some species would not have protected areas created for them, simply because they are not as engaging as other well-known species.
With just $10, you can save an acre of valuable rainforest. 100% of your contribution goes directly towards the Conservation Action Fund, which helps safeguard areas that need it most. Whether you are protecting the Critically Endangered Taita Apalis in Kenya, or the elusive Snow Leopard in Nepal, every species has just as much of a right to exist and thrive, and you are helping to give it that opportunity.
