This is what we are riding for, to prevent tragic scenes such as this!
____________________________________________Help protect beautiful creatures like this who are desperate to stop their homes from being destroyed :( this scene from a video is from 2013 and shows the rate at which rainforests are being cleared. For example, 80% of orangutan habitat has so far been cleared in Malaysia and Indonesia because the world can’t get enough of palm oil. That’s right, EIGHTY PERCENT, pretty terrifying isn’t it?_____________________________________________
Every dollar we raise goes towards protecting rainforest by purchasing land and protecting it in perpetuity.

Did you know? 👇🏼__________________________
Occurrence of Very High or Extreme Forest Fire Danger days is projected to increase by up to 20% by 2020 and up to 60% by 2050 (Parks Victoria, 2009). The more frequent and more intense fires that will be a result of climate change are likely to significantly alter ecosystems, particularly rainforests and alpine areas.
Rainforests help maintain the water cycle by producing large amounts of rainfall every year. Water produced in rainforests makes its way all over the world. As rainforests decrease in size, Earth's water cycle is affected, leading to droughts in different areas around the world.
