Our story

by Megan Witty from Rainforest Concern - Zero Carbon Tour interview

Rainforest Concern has been protecting threatened rainforest across the world for the last 27 years – five million acres so far – and is encouraging people to help support the work we are doing. This is not only to preserve ecosystems and endangered species, but also humans that live within and among them.

The main benefit of embracing sustainability is giving humans a chance to survive on the planet. Rainforest Concern is actively buying up rainforests and particularly cloud forests, so that endangered species such as spectacle bears and ocelots, as well as indigenous people, can survive in them.

Our advice

It can be difficult for organisations and start-ups to know where to begin. There are lots of people planting trees at the moment, which is a great idea, but actually preserving an acre of mature rainforest absorbs up to 30 times more carbon.

I suggest looking at our website and look into becoming a corporate partner to get involved with some of our projects to help save species and rainforests around the world.
