Rainforests are home to more than 50% of the world’s animal species. They provide livelihoods for 1.6 billion people. They even help us breathe—the Amazon rainforest alone supplies 20% of our planet’s oxygen and is one of our best defenses against climate change.
Nearly half of the Earth’s original forest cover has already been lost, and each year an additional 32 million acres are destroyed. Our world is facing the greatest extinction crisis since the fall of the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago. And because our lives are so intertwined with the forest’s great bounty, our fate—as well as the fate of millions of plants and animal species—is at stake. Join us in protecting the world’s forests. Join us in protecting our shared future.
