Be a tree-hugger for the rainforests!

Put simply, we can't survive on a planet without trees, so show them some love this summer by becoming a Rainforest Trust UK tree hugger. You can hug any trees you like in your local park, a nearby woodland, a beautiful forest, your garden, even in the street! You can hug all your 100 trees on the same day, or spread your tree-hugging out, its entirely up to you. The only rule is that they must be 100 different trees.

Why are rainforests so important?

Rainforests store and sequester billions of tonnes of carbon, protecting our planet from the impacts of climate change. They also provide vital habitat for half the world's species, many of which are endangered. But tropical deforestation is once again on the rise. In 2020 alone, the world lost over 30 million acres of tropical forest - thats nearly an acre per second. This rampant destruction released 2.64 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere, more than double all annual vehicle emissions in the USA. So now its time for us to step up and show the trees we love them - and save the rainforests for the benefit of future generations.

The Rainforest Climate Action Fund

The Rainforest Climate Action Fund supports projects which which supports our most important carbon-rich rainforest protection projects. Raising money for this fund may be the most efficient way to fight climate change right now, and together we aim to permanently lock in 15 billion metric tonnes of carbon by 2025. All donations to this fund will be doubled for a limited time, meaning every pound raised protects twice as much rainforest!
