Alliance for Zero Extinction
Did you know that September 22, 2021, the Alliance for Zero Extinction pledged a record $5 billion to conserve 30% of our Planet by 2030? This is the highest-ever non-government funding for biodiversity conservation! It matters because in May 2021 a United Nations report concluded 1 million species of animals and plants are verging on extinction.
The Alliance’s pledge includes a $500 million commitment by Rainforest Trust
, our official partner! We are proud supporters of Rainforest Trust’s mission to stop and reverse biodiversity loss and climate change through expanded protected areas, especially in tropical forests.
Well-managed protected areas that respect the rights and needs of Indigenous and local communities are a cost-effective way to safeguard the Planet and People!
