The lush forests of the Amazon remind us that trees are one of nature's greatest gifts. They clean our air and our water. They give wildlife homes. They help fight climate change by absorbing massive amounts of carbon dioxide.
Yet, every single day an area of forest equal to the size of Atlanta is chopped down. Our planet can't withstand this level of destruction. Losing the Amazon is not in anyone’s best interest. We need to send a message to decisionmakers, businesses and elected officials: forests need to be protected.
It's time to take a stand and call for a stop to rampant deforestation across the globe. Show that you stand with The Nature Conservancy in our commitment to protecting the world's forests. Together, we have the power to make sure that producing the fuel, the food and the resources we need doesn't come at the unnecessary expense of the forests we all need to survive.
Sign the pledge and stand with us to protect our vital forests.
America needs to honor our commitments to global climate action. Call for strong and continued U.S. leadership.
The lands that the endangered Florida panther calls home are at risk. Only 180 of these majestic cats are left, and every acre of habitat is critical. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depends on.
It's simple: we can't protect our nation's air, water and natural places unless we protect conservation funding.
Invasive species run amok in our lakes, parks -- and even in our own backyards. They overrun native plants and damage the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive.
Congress is close to taking a critical step to reduce U.S. energy use -- an essential strategy in the fight against climate change. But unless they hear from you now, this vital legislation will go unpassed, increasing threats to nature and communities.
There’s a leafy superhero in your backyard. How much do you know about the power of trees?
Stop Deforestation Now
Science shows us we cannot afford rampant deforestation--trees are too vital to our planet's health, beauty and ability to sustain us. We can't let 32 million acres of forests be destroyed every year. It's time to put policies and practices in place to save forests. I'm adding my voice to The Nature Conservancy's call for urgent action and conservation solutions to stop deforestation.
