Rainforest Protectors Trust - Update November 2022

We are going through a period of record high inflation and economic recession that has significantly reduced donations to charities. But climate crisis and 6th mass extinction due to human activities both are accelerating. Countries and states are fighting for the last drop of water as major rivers drop to historic lows while severe hurricanes cause billions of damages, leaving people homeless, rich or poor. It is time we take measurable actions but one thing is clear, we cannot rely on the world leaders, who has failed to save the economy and the environment.

Since it's inception in 2017, Rainforest Protectors Trust has been on a mission to purchase and permanently protect private forest lands in Sri Lanka exhibiting high biodiversity that would otherwise be clearcut. We verify the deeds are legal through our lawyers, conduct land surveys using licensed surveyors and negotiate with sellers to purchase these privately owned forest lands at the lowest possible price.

Despite having raised only 5% of the required funds towards setting up a "Rainforest Conservation and Education Center", Rainforest Protectors Trust is hopeful that during the upcoming holiday season donors will step up. The good news is that GlobalGiving will be distributing $1.2 million matching funds to charities during the upcoming Giving Tuesday which is Tuesday, November 29th. Mark your calendars, setup reminders and bookmark our project to donate during the 24 hour period (EST) on November 29th so that your donation will help us obtain matching funds. Based on previous years, we anticipate GlobalGiving to match your donations at 30% to 35% range.

The proposed "Rainforest Conservation and Education Center" in Sri Lanka would play a vital role in the future conservation of Sinharaja World Heritage Rainforest. Visitors, volunteers, school children and many more will benefit!
