Rainforest Partnership is an impact and data driven international nonprofit dedicated to protecting tropical rainforests, the lungs of our planet and a critical factor in its health.
The Amazon Basin alone stores 400 million metric tons of CO2 per year – about 25% of all carbon stored on land, and it produces 20% of the world’s oxygen.
Nearly 4,500 acres of rainforests are lost every hour from illegal logging, mining, agriculture, forest fires, and oil drilling, resulting in a lot more carbon in the atmosphere – and a lot less oxygen.
Rainforest Partnership works directly with rainforest communities to sustainably develop products found in the forest, giving the community a stake in keeping their trees intact.
When the trees are more valuable standing than cut, we can all breathe easier.
What happens in these forests affects us all everywhere.
We do all of these things to achieve the results in our work of tropical rainforest protection.
