Did you know that forest loss is often measured in football pitches? In fact, we are losing about 45 football pitches every minute! This is a terrifying rate of deforestation.
Deforestation is caused by many different drivers globally, including agriculture, cattle ranching, other industry, expansion of cities and towns and more.
But you have the power to help fight this. By financing forest conservation, you help value standing forests, keeping them alive.
Protect a football pitch sized patch of rainforest in the Amazon today. This is through supporting forest conservation at our Tambopata-Bahuaja Biodiversity Reserve project on the edge of the Amazon in Peru.
Note: Forests are a natural climate ‘technology’ that absorb and store carbon. Credits are sold in denominations of tonnes, one of which is equivalent to removing one tonne of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Saving one football pitch of rainforest removes the equivalent of just over 5 tonnes from the atmosphere.
