Why this petition matters
Sign the #CongoRainforest Petition to defund Deforestation of all forests in Africa. We need to protect the forests in Africa.
The Congo rainforest is the second largest in the world and covers a total area of 1,780,000 km2.
This forest is under attack and it may be gone by 2100
But no one ever talks about it
It is located in Africa
These are the LUNGS OF AFRICA
Raise your voice to protect.
I am on my knees right now
Help us save the LUNGS of Africa
Help us fight for Africa
I can't do this alone
We need the Congo Rainforest
We need it to be talked about
It is in danger
Home to thousands of unique species of plants and animals.
The diverse array of wildlife species– including Elephants, Chimpanzees, Gorillas, Rhinos, and countless others– are beloved around the world, but increasingly endangered.
There are also over 2000 species of orchids
Congo’s forest holds around 8% of the world’s forest-based carbon.
The basin contains many different ecosystems, including several savanna forests, a coastal forest, three large lowland forests, and a swamp forest.
The ecosystems are collapsing!!
If nothing is done to defend the interests of Africa, the continent is at risk of paying very dearly for the effects of climate change as pointed out in the 2014 Report of the IPCC.
The bill will be higher for African countries
Our lives are in your hands
