Totally in alignment with what I want to see happen with forests on this planet -- Conservation International now has a program for donating to "Protect An Acre" of Tropical Forest:
Right there on the page are links for the "Protect an Acre" program - and articles to "Learn About Climate Change" and "See The Solution".
So, all the relevant information is right from the above link.
Conservation International with their Biodiversity Hotspot concept is on it again!!
And there is more on their website -- there are 2 articles about areas in South America (which, by the way, is full of Globally Significant Biodiversity Hotspots [#4, 1, 7, 5, 6] and has a Major Tropical Wilderness Area - the Amazonia -- I know because I have the map from Conservation International!!):
Brazil's Kayapó: Powerful Allies in the Amazon : http://www.conservation.org/FMG/Articles/Pages/brazil_kayapo_ally_in_amazon.aspx
Forests for Water in the Sacred Mountain (Peru):
I am afraid, folks, that we have an uphill battle on this planet - being informed and donating as much as you think you can is one way you can contribute to making this planet healthier and keeping it livable for all!!
