Save the Amazon Rainforest!!! September 2019 Donations

This month, we are changing up the donations from Ocean conservation to helping save the Amazon Rainforest and Indigenous people that live there.
 
*Rainforest Alliance are continuing to redirect 100% of the funds contributed via this donation form in September to frontline groups working across the Amazon to defend the forest and the rights of its indigenous peoples. *
 
The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. Scientists estimate there have been 72,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil).
The largest rainforest in the world is home to many, many communities who have responsibly stewarded the land for generations. It is also a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check.
In response to this horrific surge of forest fires, we are mobilizing our broad network of partners to fight the ongoing destruction of this precious ecosystem, leveraging our unique position as trusted expert-advisors within the European Union and other international advocacy spaces, and sharing information about short and long-term solutions to the ongoing crisis of deforestation.
 
Anything purchased in my store will directly be donated at the end of September to Rainforest Alliance.
