Give the Congo Basin Forest a chance. The Congo Basin Forest does not only shelter millions of local people and endangered animals but protects all of us from climate change. Will you let the world’s second largest rainforest disappear at the hands of industrial logging and agribusiness?

Save the Congo Basin Forest

In recent years, the rate of deforestation in the Congo Basin Forest, the world’s second largest tropical rainforest, has increased at an alarming rate. The inadequate control over the forest sector and increased demands from international markets have created the perfect scenario for agribusiness and industrial logging to expand and exhaust forest resources. People who once lived harmoniously with the forests are now faced with worsening poverty and conflicts over land.
