Actions for Animals

 
Wildlife and our last remaining wild places are being destroyed because of human action or inaction and because of our own short –term greed.

The 22nd June is World Rainforests Day.  Rainforests are vital for life to survive on Earth.

Yet every minute, 40 football fields of rainforest are lost.  This threatens our biodiversity and imperils earth’s health. 

Natural climate solutions such as protecting and restoring forests could reverse global emissions by a third, according to World Rainforest Day.

This day is held to celebrate rainforests and encourage us all to protect them.  If we can all unite and become a forest of action that rains on earth, then we can make a huge difference.

The World Rainforest Day website has these things we can all do to make a positive impact on rainforests, today and every day:

Ways to help rainforests

  1. Learn about rainforests and why they matter to each of us
  2. Donate to rainforest protectors
  3. Eat more plants and less meat
  4. Shop for rainforest friendly products
  5. Travel sustainably
  6. Hold leaders and corporations accountable
  7. Spread the word
