The world’s tropical forests contain huge quantities of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes climate change. When they are destroyed for farmland and other purposes, they release their stored carbon prematurely and in quantities greater than all the world’s cars, trucks and planes combined. The result is changing rainfall patterns, rising ocean levels and increased drought.
One of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to reduce global carbon emissions is to conserve tropical forests. When we do it, we also:
- Protect the natural habitat of many threatened and endangered species
- Preserve the livelihood and incomes of local communities
- Curb climate change
