Protect the Congo Basin so that it continues to be an incredibly rich and diverse ecosystem that provides food, fresh water, shelter and medicine for tens of millions of people and a home to endangered wildlife species.
In recent years, the rate of deforestation in the Congo Basin Forest, the world's second largest tropical rainforest, has increased at an alarming rate. The inadequate control over the forest sector and increased demands from international markets have created the perfect scenario for agribusiness and industrial logging to expand and exhaust forest resources.
The millions of people and the animals who depend on the Congo Basin Forest should be able to live harmoniously with the forest. And our only home, Earth needs the forest to flourish in order to reduce the effects of climate change today and in the future.
The Congo Basin Forest is one of the most important places in the world to help reduce the effects of climate change. A recently discovered peatland - a special ecosystem that helps keep our entire planet cool - is why this forest should matter to all of us.
We want a movement that stops the illegal logging and forest exploitation in the green heart of Africa.
We need every voice to keep the forest untouched. Take the pledge to stop illegal logging and deforestation in the green heart of Africa.
