Million Tree Challenge Support Amazon Wildfires

Amazon Rain Forest Wildfire. Donate!

Brazil's Amazon rainforest Wildfire

"The Lungs Of The Planet" Is Burning

  

  • Million tree challenge: Donate to our amazing reforestation project across Brazil, who we are working hard to restore land that has been devastated by wildfires.
  • Donate now to plant a tree where it's needed most, Brazil. 
  • More than 60% of Peru is covered by the Amazon rainforest. Our reforestation project is located in the Madre de Dios region, home to over 10 percent of the world's bird species. The goal is to restore and protect the "buffer zone" between Tambopata National Reserve, Bahuaja-Sonene National Park, and the city of Puerto Maldonado. This area has been identified as a high risk zone for deforestation and degradation due to unsustainable agricultural practices in the region. Planting trees here will help conserve habitat for the Jaguar and hundreds of other species living in the protected areas, while providing sustainable livelihoods to local people.  
  • Brazil contains about 60% of the Amazon rainforest, whose degradation could have severe consequences for global climate and rainfall.
  • Fires are raging at a record rate in Brazil's Amazon rainforest, and scientists warn that it could strike a devastating blow to the fight against climate change.
  • The Amazon is often referred to as the planet's lungs, producing 20% of the oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere. 
  • It is considered vital in slowing global warming, and it is home to uncountable species of fauna and flora. Roughly half the size of the United States, it is the largest rainforest on the planet. Disaster Relief Charity Donate!
