Only 24% of the Earth's remaining rainforests are intact. Continued deforestation threatens a quarter of the world's carbon stores, 20% of its oxygen production and six million species.
The act of removing swathes of rainforest directly contributes to climate change, constituting more than 12% of total CO2 emissions.
Cool Earth halts deforestation at the front line, and is the only charity to do so. Local people stand to lose the most from deforestation but also have the most to gain from its protection. As such, they are the forest's best custodians. It's where there's a real chance to end a cycle of dependency that sustains continual deforestation. Partnerships such as ours in Northern Peru are community led for a very good reason.
Cool Earth works directly with local communities to invest in sustainable livelihood support, forest health and community improvement. For over 10 years, the non-profit organisation has created partnerships that improve the quality of life for local people and protect surrounding forests as a result. Every village that partners with Cool Earth establishes a fund account and Community Association to deliver support in a way that best suits each community. Our customers directly contribute to these funds.
We're working to halt rainforest destruction in Northern Peru, home to the the Awajún. It's an area already threatened by high levels of oil and gold extraction, but deforestation poses a considerable risk. In total, 55,113 acres are now under the control of local people in Cool Earth's partnership. Without concerted effort to halt deforestation 7,186 species of sheltered animal, 15 endangered species, and the livelihood of just over 2,200 local inhabitants face an uncertain future.
