World Rainforest Day

June 22, 2024

World Rainforest Day is celebrated annually on June 22nd. Rainforests are some of the most diverse habitats we have on the planet providing homes to countless species and absorbing massive amounts of carbon each year. Rainforests once made up 14% of the world's land mass, but unfortunately, due to industrialisation and farming that number has been reduced to only 6%. This has had a severe impact on local populations, animal habitats, and global efforts to combat climate change. World Rainforest Day is a great opportunity for businesses to support some great causes working to protect our planet.

Charities and Causes to support on World Rainforest Day:

There are a number of great rainforest conservation and wildlife charities that you can support today. Here are a few:

  • Rainforest Foundation UK - Supporting conservation efforts by empowering indigenous peoples to protect their homes.

  • BOS UK - Saving orangutans in immediate danger through rescue, rehabilitation, and re-introduction to protected rainforests
