The importance of tropical rain forests is undeniable. You can help save this integral piece of the planet.
Contribute to Rain Forest Rescue
Your donation makes a real difference in terms of trees and all the life they support. Contributions to Rain Forest Rescue fund numerous local programs making strides to protect the rain forest and educate those who rely on it for survival. Every $10 donation, on average, can save 2,500 square feet of threatened forest.
Support Sustainably Produced Rain Forest Products
An important step in preserving the rain forest is helping people native to these lands earn a good living by making sustainable use of their ancestral homeland. That means supporting imports of materials like resins, latex, fruits, nuts, wood products and rattan sustainably harvested from the rain forest. Become an educated consumer—if you don’t know where it came from, ask.
Visit a Rain Forest
In addition to expanding your knowledge of rain forests and how to save them, your tourist dollars will help persuade developing countries of the economic value of maintaining these crucial ecosystems.
