Sponsor your own acre or more of rainforest!

It costs £50 to sponsor one acre of rainforest and, in return, we will give you a personalised certificate recording your sponsorship and regular updates on our progress. In protecting one acre of forest you will also be sponsoring the protection of many plants and animals - from the majestic cats to resplendent birds and the industrious ants living on the floor of the rainforest! If you raise over £100 there are books and T-shirts up for grabs! Click here for more information.
