Protect the World's Forests.
Forests are a critical part of Earth’s ecosystem and must be protected. They play a key role in mitigating climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it; tropical forests alone hold around 250 gigatons of carbon, more than seven times the amount emitted each year by human activities.See a Demo
However, as well as protecting the planet from the worst effects of climate change, over a billion people rely on forests for shelter, livelihoods, water, fuel, and food. They are also home to around 80% of our land-based animal species.
Deforestation disrupts the lives of both humans and animals, and is a serious threat to the health of the Earth.
