Trees fight climate change
Forests are home to hundreds of species of birds, animals and plants. A walk in the forest can soothe our souls and inspire the human imagination. But don’t forget that forests are also a powerful ally in the fight against climate change. To stave off the worst effects of climate change, we need to protect old growth trees and plant new trees through sustainable forestry practices.
Rare has curated high-value forestry projects in the United States and globally to make it easy for you to donate to nature conservation with confidence. Your dollars will go to projects that are certified to have high impact for climate mitigation as well as positive benefits for wildlife and neighboring communities.
According to US Forest Service data, 46% of the land we call America was once covered in forests. By donating, you are protecting old growth forests that otherwise would be cut down for lumber or land development.
