If Acre has recently placed an individual with your organisation and you have received an e-mail inviting you to take up our ‘Ecoscheme’ initiative, please fill in the form above and we’ll donate to Cool Earth on your behalf.

About 100 acres of rainforest are cleared every minute. In 24 hours deforestation releases as much CO2 into the atmosphere as 8 million people flying from London to New York and destroys unique and irreplaceable ecosystems.

Selecting this option will secure one quarter of an acre of rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon, through Cool Earth. The land will be put into local trust and protected from deforestation to keep the carbon where it belongs and the plants and animals safe. Cool earth employs local people providing them and the community with a positive income from the rainforest and a secure future.

  • ZSL’s Edge of Existence Programme

    Elephants, rhinos and pandas may be the poster boys of conservation but many equally unique and threatened species are in danger of slipping unnoticed towards extinction. Your donation will support the Zoological Society of London to raise the profile and initiate conservation of the world’s most Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species.
