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. The future of many of Earth’s plants and animals will be determined within the next few decades.
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. It is up to all of us to act responsibly and to be good stewards by contributing to the sustainable production of all the goods and services that the Earth’s tropical forests provide.
From the very beginning of our journey, the Rainforest Alliance has forged innovative solutions to address the global crisis of deforestation. The complex web of pressures that threaten our forests demand comprehensive, landscape-level solutions that address not only environmental threats but the economic pressures that contribute to them. We constantly evaluate our results in order to amplify our impact.
Quite simply, our solutions work. Join the Rainforest Alliance in helping people and nature prosper together. You’ll receive updates on our work and ways you can get involved.
