Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside
indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction on three
Cool Earth saves at-risk rainforest and shields millions of
acres of neighbouring forest. We put local people back in control,
giving them the resources they need to keep their forest
We know that saving the rainforest isn't a new idea. Managing to
do it is. Over the last 40 years, half the world's rainforests have
been destroyed. That's why Cool Earth decided to go about things
We don't create reserves or put up fences. We don't buy land.
Instead, we put indigenous people back in control of the world's
most endangered rainforest. These people have lived in the forest
for countless generations. Their homes are now on the
frontline of deforestation. They have the most to lose from
deforestation. By building better incomes, better schools and
better clinics, we give our partner villages the resources
they need to keep their forest intact.
Cool Earth is now working alongside 113 rainforest villages
throughout the world. These partner villages are protecting over
500,000 acres of forest that lie directly in the path of chainsaws
The clever part is that this forest is forming a shield to make
the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers - saving
millions of acres of further forest.
At least 90% of each donation to Cool Earth goes directly to our
projects. With this support, Cool Earth can put in place the simple
steps that change the fate of at-risk rainforest and the lives of
our indigenous partners.
