The Earth is Speaking

Are we listening?

Thank you for supporting Us

100% of donations made in honor of Earth Day directly support our programs



Tropical forests absorb 1.4 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year—and lands held by indigenous peoples absorb approximately 25% of that!

Deforestation is accelerating in most of the world, and most of this destruction is in the Amazon rainforest, the most biodiverse terrestrial ecosystem on Earth.

Indigenous peoples are the best protectors of their forests—forests our whole planet depends upon to maintain ecological balance.

While there is much to grieve, there is also so much to be grateful for. With your help, we’re standing up for indigenous people’s lands and against deforestation so that future generations can live in a healthy and balanced ecosystem.

We honor the Earth on Earth Day and every day.
