How we protect forest

Wilderness International

Our guide to saving the world

A tree has a lot to tell

Some of the giant trees in our protected areas are already 1,000 years old. They could live for another 1,000 years. But how can we guarantee that they won't be destroyed before then?

Living tree. Living space.

Every euro saves one square meter of living space. Sounds good. But it's even better.

 

Example: With a donation of 64€ to Wilderness International, you protect a piece of forest that is 64m2 in size. This corresponds to a 3,200m3 habitat with countless niche habitats for a huge variety of animals and plants that interact with each other in symbiosis.

 

Our graphic shows you how much life there is in a Brazil nut tree from the root to the crown.

Old as a tree, I would like to be.

The old-growth forest I am standing in right now is thousands of years old, if not hundreds of thousands. This ecosystem has developed over so many years and has become so tightly knotted that it would not only be a shame to lose the ecosystem - it would be a dramatic loss.
