We are protecting over 2,000 species of plants and over 23 of IUCN threatened tree species.
As is emphasized in the ETH Zurich Study published in Science in July 2019, the most effective method to combat climate change is to protect existing forests and conduct reforestation.
As is shown in NASA and Duke University study 2005 and NASA study 2014 it is tropical forests that have the largest carbon absortion capacity in the world. Therefore, priority should be given to protecting tropical forests. Their importance for mitigating climate change cannot be overstated because they are located around the Earth’s Tropical Belt, where the Planet is closest to the heat of the Sun, and their layers of complex vegetation are buffering the ground from the sun’s heat. The rainforest’s complex layers create a natural air cooling system that lowers ambient temperature by at least 7 degrees and has an in-built mechanism for attracting rainfall from the ocean.
