Savings: By investing 100 euros every year to protect old-growth forests, you ensure that the areas are turned into conservation areas that store carbon and uphold biodiversity. The Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation’s old-growth forest protection campaign buys 200 square metres of natural reserves and protects them.
Remember this: Forests need constant protection and care. Maintaining and expanding the current carbon sinks and stores plays a large role in mitigating climate change.
Reducing your carbon footprint: Investing regularly in the protection of precious forests and other natural areas you help maintain the size of carbon sinks.
