Half the world's rainforest has been lost over the past forty years. We need a new approach.
The only way to halt destruction is to align the future of the rainforest with the people best placed to protect it. This means placing forest in the hands of the people who rely on its survival for their survival.
Cool Earth does just that.
It's not too late. Cool Earth believes the rainforest can be saved. We just need a new approach.
That’s why we don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put indigenous people back in control of their forest.
Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction. Over the last ten years, Cool Earth has used its community-led model to save at-risk rainforest. Unlike any other rainforest NGO, Cool Earth protects forest by empowering the people who live there. We don’t buy land or create reserves. We make sure rainforest protection goes hand in hand with better lives.
