A while back when I was in Costa Rica on a fishing trip, my Dad and I took part of a day to check out the rainforest. Honestly, it was pretty disappointing. I thought it would be something really worth seeing, but it was just dark gray skies with low-hanging clouds and dull green vegetation everywhere. I didn’t even see any wildlife. While rainforest may not live up to the marketing hype in terms of visual experience (I swear every picture associated with rainforests includes bright colors), they’re still hugely important ecosystems. That’s why Rainforest Trust was “established in 1988 to save rainforests and other threatened tropical habitats that are critical for preventing imminent species extinction.” They’re a Warrenton, VA based non-profit that works “to purchase and protect threatened tropical forests.” It’s hard to think of a better way to save something than to buy it outright.
According to Rainforest Trust more than a hundred acres of rainforest are cleared every minute. That’s why the organization is doing everything that it can to lower that number. So far they’ve “saved nearly 8 million REAL acres in REAL places across 20 tropical countries and 73 sites.” That’s as if all rainforest clearing had been stopped for nearly two months. Every $100 in donations to Rainforest Trust can save about an acre of rainforest. You can see the kind of project that the money goes to here. You may also want to read up on the Trust’s Strategy to better understand why they buy land instead of other approaches. If saving the rainforest is something that you’ve always wanted to do, visit Rainforest Trust’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Webmaster/Digital Media Specialist.
