Why Donate to Protect an Acre of Rainforest?
Amazon Rainforest Conservancy (ARC) is saving threatened tropical rainforest habitats in the Peruvian jungle acre by acre. We currently protect 3,500 acres (1,416 hectares) of pristine rainforest in the remote area of Tambopata, Peru. The rainforest provides the air we breathe, filters the water we drink, and reduces carbon pollution.
With your donation, not only will you be helping us protect land that would otherwise be deforested due to illegal gold mining, logging, and slash and burn farming, you will be helping us protect a large safe haven for some of the Amazon’s most vulnerable wildlife.
In the past ten years, Peru has lost more than 1 million hectares of tropical rainforest. Make one of the most meaningful investments you can make for future generations - protect an acre of rainforest for $50.
Will you join us in saving a pristine and biodiverse habitat that is in jeopardy?
How Big is an Acre?
An acre is 0.4 hectares or 4000 square metres, which is an area about the size of 200 parked cars.
