At current rates of deforestation, the Congo rainforest will be gone by 2100. And if that year seems to be in the distant future, consider that many of today’s kindergarteners will still be alive to see this complete destruction of what is currently the second largest rainforest on the planet. The good news? You can change the outcome.
With nearly nine million acres already under protection and two million more on the way, the Bonobo Peace Forest provides real solutions. Your support keeps the Bonobo Peace Forest growing. Our integrative approach addresses human needs and conservation needs simultaneously, providing a sustainable alternative to the human activities that drive the widespread deforestation we see today. As more and more communities are getting inspired to join the Peace Forest, we are moving ever closer to a future in which bonobos—and their human neighbors—not only survive, but thrive.
An Attitude of Gratitude
In honor of our 20th anniversary, we’d like to share with you 20 reasons that we and so many others are grateful for bonobos and the Bonobo Peace Forest. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting some incredible people (and bonobos!) who inspire us. Keep an eye on your inbox for a daily dose of gratitude!
Your Commitment Counts
Most of all, we are grateful to YOU for making all of our work possible. Thank you for all you do to help save our sister species and their irreplaceable habitat. Your generous contribution makes all the difference.
A brighter future is possible, thanks to you.
With deepest gratitude,
Sally Jewell Coxe
Founder and President
