The Amazon are in many way the lungs of the earth. Today, we need the rainforest more than ever as they are an important tool in combatting climate change. Unfortunately, the lungs are sick. As you can see from the images below, deforestation in the Amazon is still a very real issue. In Peru alone there are over 5.000 square km of deforested land that is not used anymore as a few years of agriculture has exhausted the land. Our aim is to restore this land. We do this by buying the land, replanting trees and guarding it so the trees are not cut down again.
We are not going to fix global warming on our own, but we aim to make the earth's lungs a bit more healthy!
