Swann & Co. is proud to be a Friend of Rainforest Trust UK, a British charity working in partnership with Rainforest Trust in the U.S. to protect the world’s most threatened rainforests and other tropical ecosystems.
Rainforest Trust is one of the world’s most respected and successful conservation charities, and works in partnership with trusted local NGOs and indigenous communities to save the world’s most threatened rainforests and tropical ecosystems. Rainforest Trust has been protecting rainforests for over 30 years and has already placed over 25 million acres of threatened habitat under permanent protection. You can find out more about Rainforest Trust’s uniquely successful approach to conservation by clicking here.
All donations to the charity’s SAVES Challenge conservation projects are doubled by a generous supporter, meaning every pound donated will save twice as much rainforest for endangered species, indigenous communities and the climate. Rainforest Trust UK also guarantees that 100% of all donations are directed towards direct conservation action as all its operating expenses are covered by its board members and Gift Aid.
Tropical deforestation accounts for up to 15% of net global carbon emissions each year – the same as every car, truck, bus, plane, ship and train on the planet. Safeguarding existing rainforests is one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways an individual can fight climate change, as every acre safely stores over 100 tonnes of carbon that could otherwise enter the atmosphere as the greenhouse gas CO2. Studies have shown that halting tropical deforestation and allowing for regrowth could mitigate up to 50% of net global carbon emissions in the next 30 years – yet rainforests are still being cut down at a rate of 70,000 acres a day. And as well as storing billions of tonnes of carbon, the world’s rainforests produce 20% of the planet’s oxygen, stabilise global weather patterns, provide habitat for thousands of endangered species and sustain the livelihoods of millions of indigenous people. In short, we can’t really live without them.
This year, from fires to floods to droughts, we were all reminded of how much is at stake for our planet.
We at Rainforest Trust are excited to bring this new momentum into our conservation work to protect land for wildlife, people, and the planet across the tropics.
Launched in 2016, the SAVES Challenge is a bold initiative to invest $100 million over five years in conservation projects to save millions of acres of habitat for endangered species.
The impact of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on conservation worldwide.
The Conservation Action Fund supports Rainforest Trust’s most urgent work around the world, allowing the charity to direct money where it is most urgently needed. On average, it only costs Rainforest Trust £1.60 to protect an acre of rainforest, for the benefit of endangered species, indigenous communities and the climate.
