Helping bonobos. Helping the planet.

Dear Friend,

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has sounded the alarm on climate change in its recent report. The message is clear: Climate change is real, it's happening now, and it's caused by humans. As global temperatures rise due to greenhouse gas emissions, sea level will continue to rise, and temperature and precipitation extremes will intensify. But there is hope! If we drastically cut global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and reach net zero CO2 emissions by the middle of this century, we can halt and possibly reverse the rise in temperatures. 

Approximately 11% of carbon emissions are due to deforestation and forest degradation. BCI and our partners in the bonobo habitat have been creating and implementing solutions to protect forests for over twenty years. The Bonobo Peace Forest encompasses vast areas of irreplaceable rainforest in the Congo Basin. Peace forest communities--through their conservation programs--are protecting their own forests from logging and other harmful activities, helping to keep carbon out of the atmosphere and turn back the tide of climate change. None of this would have been possible without the support of our generous donors.

Building upon this foundation, we have been working to bring greater, sustainable benefits to our partners who perform this valuable work. Through the REDD+ mechanism, our partners will be empowered to continue and expand their conservation, forest management, and community development programs for decades to come. Stay tuned for more developments on this front in the coming months!

As always, thank you for standing with us.
