what you'll do
The Amazon rainforest is burning. In times like these—when the skies get dark and the headlines get ugly—we can’t just sit back and watch. It’s on us to open our hearts and do something about it. To support Conservation International’s crucial work in the rainforest, we’re giving you the chance to win $1,000 to take action and give back to the charity of your choice. Omaze will make a donation in your name, and you can use the funds to send more love to Amazonia or give back to another cause that matters to you. The important thing is that you’re making a difference, and we’re endlessly thankful for that.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
who you'll help
For more than 30 years, Conservation International has worked to protect the nature that people rely on—including the Amazon rainforest. Conservation International has already helped conserve 10% of the Amazon, and they aim to achieve zero net deforestation in Amazonia by 2020. Here’s how:
- By establishing new protected areas, Indigenous lands and territories
- Expanding protected areas of the forest and emphasizing their income-generating potential (e.g. ecotourism)
- Promoting long-term sustainable development and agriculture by giving them economic benefits
- Reducing the main drivers of deforestation, including poverty
- Securing private-sector commitments on deforestation-free supply chains
- And beyond!
The Amazon basin hosts the richest biodiversity of any ecosystem on Earth and provides a home and livelihoods to 30 million people. Your generosity will help Conservation International preserve the rainforest, its biodiversity and the people that depend on it, so future fires of this magnitude will never happen again.
