Save the Heart of the Amazon

Protect Amazonian Rainforest for Just Pennies.
The Amazon Rainforest is the largest tract of tropical rainforest in the Americas, and is home to the largest known collection of plants and animals in the world. Amazonian forests are under constant assault from loggers, ranchers, and mining interests, threatening the extinction of thousands of species each year. The need for permanent, large-scale protection is urgent.
GreaterGood and The Rainforest Site are partnering with Rainforest Trust (formerly World Land Trust-US) on their most ambitious project to date - protecting 5.9 million acres of primary rainforest in the Sierra del Divisor Range in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest in Peru. This range, which is home to 16 primate species, provides habitat for many rare plants and animals whose survival depends on its protection. Together with its Peruvian partner CEDIA, Rainforest Trust will create two nationally protected areas and a buffer zone of community lands, ensuring this large area will be protected into perpetuity.
You can help. By working with local and national governments, we are able to protect this land at the incredible cost of just $.50 an acre. The time to act is now - without protection, this area could be gone in just a matter of years. Just $30 protects 60 acres - help save the heart of the Amazon today.
Rainforest Trust (formerly World Land Trust-US) is proud to have saved over 7 million acres of endangered habitats in 15 countries and 65 sites since its inception in 1989. Their proven conservation approach and established network of dedicated local conservation organizations allow them to identify key rainforest sites containing the last populations of endangered wildlife under imminent threat. Through stewardship, education, training, and economic stimulants like eco-tourism for the indigenous people, Rainforest Trust ensures that the lands they save are securing a rich and more diverse future for all life on earth.
