Home to around two-thirds of all plant and animal species found on land — in addition to the millions of people who depend on them for survival — our remaining ancient forests are some of our most diverse ecosystems. They are also vitally important to the health of our planet, especially when it comes to regulating the climate.

"We're working to create a world with zero deforestation.
Will you join us?"

—Forests Campaign Director Rolf Skar

Yes, I want to protect ancient forests!

With so many of the world's forests already destroyed, we urgently need to protect what is left. Yet industry is still relentlessly converting forests into disposable products that end up in our shopping baskets - while pushing species to the brink of extinction, destroying the lives and livelihoods of forest communities and exacerbating global climate change. We need your help to protect what forests remain.

Learn more about our motivation, our vision, our impact and our current projects in forest protection.
