Our planet’s rainforests are being cut down at a terrifying rate. You have the power to stop this today. You can protect a tennis court-sized patch of rainforest in the Amazon.

Did you know that forests are the world’s natural solution to climate change? Trees absorb and store carbon, so preventing them from being cut down is one of the most effective actions we can take to tackle climate change. Forests are also habitat for beautiful and rare species, like jaguars, macaws and giant otters, and provide a livelihood for local and indigenous communities.

As you watch the finalists beat the grass of Wimbledon in the blazing, uncharacteristically hot London sunshine, take action on climate change by halting deforestation in your own rainforest patch in Peru.

 

Note: You can protect forests by paying for the carbon they store; these are called carbon credits and are sold in denominations of tonnes, one of which is equivalent to removing one tonne of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Our Tambopata-Bahuaja Biodiversity Reserve project in Peru uses this climate financing to address the drivers of deforestation on the ground by working with local communities. Saving one tennis court of rainforest removes the equivalent of 0.19 tonnes from the atmosphere, the equivalent of driving 466 miles in a car.
