It's your last day to take the pledge to protect forests!

The protection and restoration of nature is essential to addressing the causes and impacts of climate change — yet it’s often overlooked. The protection of tropical forests and other critical ecosystems can provide at least 30% of the climate solution by preventing additional greenhouse gases from being released into the atmosphere. These same ecosystems can also help provide a buffer from storm surges and other harmful impacts of climate change. Nature is a powerful defense against climate change — take the pledge to help protect it: I pledge to protect nature so that nature can protect us. I pledge to confront climate change — one of the greatest threats facing humanity today. I pledge to keep pressure on world leaders so that the goals of the Paris Agreement to secure a sustainable climate for all can be fully realized.
