Fighting Climate Change by Protecting the World’s Most Important Tropical Forests
In the midst of the worsening climate crisis, tropical deforestation is once again on the rise. In 2020 alone, the world lost over 30.1 million acres of tropical forest – an area larger than the state of Pennsylvania. That’s nearly an acre per second.
This rampant destruction dumped into our atmosphere 2.64 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide, more than double all annual vehicle emissions in the USA.
We must act now.
Take a stand for our planet this Earth Day and donate to our new Rainforest Climate Action Fund to support two projects that protect forests which cost-effectively store and sequester vast quantities of carbon.
Donating to this fund may be the most efficient way to fight climate change right now. Together, we will work to permanently lock up 15 billion tonnes of carbon by 2025.
All gifts will be matched 1:1 up to $920,000.
We’d like to thank our founding donors to the Rainforest Climate Action Fund for offering a match in celebration of Earth Day: Bruce and Jian Irish, Docusign, Jefferies LLC, and Gerald, Keith, Rosemary and Julia Bradley.

Rainforest Trust was founded on the premise that all rainforests, especially those replete with endangered species and endemic biodiversity, should be priority conservation sites, and that protection provides the best means of preventing destruction.
Protecting the most threatened tropical forests.
