Why do we need your support?
Sadly, the Amazon rainforest is in jeopardy, as noted by American Astronaut, Captain Mark Kelly.
“When I first looked down upon the Amazon rainforest in 2001,” says Kelly, “I saw vast areas of jungle and a wide winding copper-coloured river that went on and on. A river that was impossible to miss and like no other on the planet. By 2011, however, the part that was most noticeable wasn’t the river or the jungle but the large swaths of empty land.”
Species are going extinct at an alarming rate and the long-term health of the planet is in question. Leading scientists say that if we want to avoid mass extinctions and preserve the ecosystem all plants and animals depend on, we need to focus on areas of high biodiversity like the Amazon rainforest lands protected by ARC. The fate of humans is connected to this as well.
Did you know?
ARC consists of entirely of volunteers. We don’t have the executive salaries and overhead of some other conservation groups, which means we direct all donations to protecting land from destruction. Our work depends entirely on donations from our supporters, who share a passion for the natural world and are committed to helping us achieve our goals.
Help us save one of the world’s most precious natural resources.
Please donate today – we really appreciate your help!
