SUPPORT FOREST CONSERVATION
Along with reforestation, protecting existing forests is one of the most important solutions to mitigating climate change. We encourage all of our treesisters to give monthly to conservation and reforestation. Both aspects of environmental care are crucial. Here are the conservation organisations we recommend.
The Pachamama Alliance’s mission is to empower indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture and, using insights gained from that work, to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world.
Global Wildlife Conservation envisions a thriving Earth where all life flourishes. GWC conserves the diversity of life on Earth by preserving wildlands, restoring wildlife and engaging with global guardians. Driven by science, GWC maximizes its impact through conservation solutions in research and exploration, land purchase and protected area establishment, protected area management, poaching prevention, and capacity building.
The Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI) is an NGO based in Washington D.C. and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Our mission is to protect bonobos, preserve their tropical rainforest habitat and empower local communities in the Congo Basin. Together with the Congoloese communities, the DRC government and international partners, BCI is implementing innovative solutions to address the complex challenge of bonobo conservation.
Thirty years ago, The Rainforest Foundation was founded with a radically new idea, that protecting indigenous peoples’ rights wasn’t just the right thing to do, it was the best way to protect our forests. We use a variety of methods, tools and techniques to protect the rainforests. Together with the indigenous communities we support, we have saved 28 million acres of rainforest.
Conservation International is an environmental organization that has worked in Suriname for the last 23 years, and over 25 years internationally in 40 countries to protect nature. Our mission is to build a strong foundation of science, partnership and field demonstration so as to empower societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature. Our global biodiversity stewardship enables the well-being of humanity.
