BENEFITING: Rainforest Alliance

THE STORY:

Forests are critical to the survival of every living thing on Earth. Forests clean the air, regulate weather, absorb greenhouse gas emissions, and stabilize the climate—both global and local.    

Rainforests are ecological powerhouses. Not only do they stabilize global climate patterns, they also support healthy micro-climates and limit the earth’s reflectivity. This in turn regulates ocean currents, wind patterns, and rainfall. As home to 80 percent of the world's terrestrial biodiversity, forests are crucial to maintaining the balance of marvelously efficient—yet delicate—ecosystems.     

The survival of every living thing on Earth hinges on a delicately-balanced web of interdependence. If we are to thrive, we must work together on many fronts to rebalance the planet. Our work is bringing real, measurable benefits to forests, communities, and wildlife around the world.

I was lucky enough to see the Golden Toad in Costa Rica in the 1980's while on a trip there with the Missouri Botanical Garden. At the time, there were only a few males in captivity in the Reserva Biológica Bosque Nuboso Monteverde (Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve). None have been sighted in the wild since and the species is presumed extinct. So, in memory of the Golden Toad, I am dedicating this contribution! 4 years ago
