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!
