BENEFITING: AMAZON AID FOUNDATION
Problem: Land conversion is the single largest threat to tropical forests worldwide. Most landholders rely on extractive practices for economic benefit. Few effective economic incentives exist for landholders to protect forests.
Solution: Direct private protection. ACRE+CARE links global donors with local landholders to conserve the Amazon Forest and all its inhabitants.
ACRE+CARE is a revolutionary rainforest conservation project that allows people to invest directly in the protection of the Amazon. Through our easy-to-use donation platform, you can adopt a piece of the southeastern Peruvian rainforest and protect it for 40 years.
