News Template: Title Should Go Here

By Suzanne Pelletier, Executive Director of Rainforest Foundation US

(Exclude byline unless 1. “authored” by Suzanne or a Program Director/Manager, 2. authored by a guest writer, 3. authored by an intern whose exposure/development we want to support, 4. co-authored by RFUS and another org)

  • Three summary bullets
  • At the top of the article
  • Summarizing the article!

Banner

  • Header image should be 50% height of the page (found in the Layout column of “Edit Section”).
  • Header image can be set to any position except for “custom” (position is found in the Style column) because “custom” does not resize well when you adjust the size of the webpage window 

Headers

  • Article titles use Heading 1 format
  • All sub-headers use Heading 2 or Heading 3 formats (do not write headings in all caps)

Links

  • Links that lead to RFUS content should open within the same tab.
  • Links that navigate to other websites should open in a new tab.
  • When adding a standalone sentence that links to another page, the sentence should be: preceded and followed by a paragraph space, bold, and end in a period. Here’s an example:

Images

  • Images can be displayed in one of two formats: gallery, with three small images stretching across the width of the article; or a right aligned image with wrapping text. Both of these are shown below.
  • Images with wrapping text should be set to “Medium Large Cropped – 800 x 450. If this setting cuts out too much of the image, then select Custom Size, type in 800 width, and it will automatically adjust the height of the image. If the image is not good enough quality to be set to 800 width, then set it to a smaller width (as in, 700 or 650) but be sure to change all other images on the page to match that same width. The ultimate goal is to have all images line up.
Captions for galleries should be right aligned, medium grey, and end with a period. Credits are formatted as such, IMAGE CREDIT: First Last/Organization name or acronym

If you want to keep an image with a caption  tighter with the text, add the “default” class to the text element, instead. Note: If there are other images on the page where you don’t want this effect, you’ll have to make this a separate text element.

Mesoamerican Community Leaders Point the Way Toward a High-Integrity Carbon Market

The Mesoamerican Alliance of Peoples and Forests (AMPB), in collaboration with Rainforest Foundation US and Fundación PRISMA, convened in El Salvador to shape a united vision for strengthening the integrity of carbon markets in the region. This comes at a crucial moment as governments and the private sector increasingly advocate for nature-based solutions, including carbon markets and REDD+ initiatives, which have been developed without adequate input from the communities leading forest protection efforts on the ground.

Take Action Against Climate Change

Rainforests absorb and store more carbon dioxide than all other types of forests, making rainforest protection one of the most effective solutions to climate change. Support indigenous peoples on the frontlines of rainforest protection.
