The Nature Conservancy is one of our favorite charities here at Vermont Woods Studios. TNC has been working to protect Earth’s most important natural places — for us and future generations— for nearly 60 years. They are one of the leading conservation organizations in the world and their reputation for great science and smart partnerships is renowned.
Plant A Billion Trees is one of TNCs ongoing projects that dovetails with our mission of forest preservation at Vermont Woods Studios. The goal is to save one of the world’s most endangered rainforests, The Brazilian Atlantic Forest:
“Animal and plant life of every imaginable kind live under the lush, green canopy of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest. High in the treetops, golden lion tamarins forage for food while woolly spider monkeys gather fruit and nuts. Blue-winged macaws, red-tailed parrots and countless other birds call out while elusive jaguars prowl the forest floor.”
The strategy is to plant a tree for every dollar raised: one dollar, one tree, one planet. You’ll start to see fundraising buttons on our site as we get this project up and running over the next few months. Our goal is to raise $2000 for the initiative. You can make a lasting difference now and for future generations. All it takes is a dollar. Thanks for your help!
