Why are forests so important?

Forests mitigate climate change

Forests play a critical role in mitigating climate change because they soak up huge amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that would otherwise be free in the atmosphere and contribute to ongoing changes in climate patterns.

They protect diverse plant and animal species

Forests create ecosystems that are essential for life on earth. Habitat protection is the most effective way for the conservation of species. Forests are home to 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.  If we don't save our forests we will risk losing thousands and thousands of species. 

People's lives depend on it

Deforestation disrupts the lives of local communities, sometimes with devastating consequences.  Without the trees, species can disappear, the natural water balance can become disrupted and the ecosystem that supports the human population can fall apart.

Why it is absolutely critical 
Did you know that the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is a biodiversity hotspot, is far more depleted than the Amazon Rainforest?
No other large tropical forest has suffered this much loss! 
This forest once stretched over 130 million hectares along Brazil's southeastern coast. Intense deforestation began 500 years ago and since then 93% of the forest has disappeared; as little as 7% of the forest remains. 
What is WeForest doing?
To combat the progressive loss of biodiversity, WeForest is restoring corridors of forest between the remaining forest fragments. Local species, many of which are endangered, will be able to move between previously isolated patches. This will allow them to diversify their gene pools, which is important for the survival of endangered species, such as the native black lion tamarin. They also empower the local communities
100% of our profits are donated directly to WeForest for 
tree planting and forest restoration.
