Global Forest Watch | Monitoring Forests in Near Real Time
Static Preview

Global Forest Watch is a dynamic online forest monitoring and alert system that empowers people everywhere to better manage forests.

For the first time, Global Forest Watch unites satellite technology, open data, and crowdsourcing (our citizens as writers, storytellers, photographers and videographers) to guarantee access to timely and reliable information about forests.

Armed with the latest information from Global Forest Watch, governments, businesses and communities can halt forest loss.

Global Forest Watch was created by the World Resources Institute with over 40 partners, including: Google, ESRI, the University of Maryland, Imazon, Center for Global Development, and the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP). Major funders include the Norwegian Climate and Forests Initiative, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), U.K. Department for International Development (DFID), Global Environment Facility (GEF), and the Tilia Fund.

An Appeal:How to Help

Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered and without urgent action could be the first Great Ape species to become extinct.

SOS is dedicated to turning this situation around. We do this by:
Raising awareness about the importance of protecting orangutans and their rainforest home; Supporting grassroots projects which empower local people to become guardians of the rainforests;
Restoring damaged orangutan habitat through tree planting programmes; and campaigning on issues threatening the survival of orangutans in the wild.

Help us protect orangutans, their forests and their future.

SOS was established in 1997 by the late Lucy Wisdom.

The Forest is For All of Us by Community Leader Domingo Peas
Static Preview

Domingo Peas is the community leader of the Sharamentsa,
Achuar Territory, Ecuador, South America.  He talks about humans being required to respect the forest because here we have all the ecosystem. For the Ochoa, in the forest we have our power. Through our ancestors, we give positive energy for all the force that we have. In this sense we fight to defend ourselves because the forest is not just for the Ochoa, it is for all of humanity, for all of the countries that exist on this planet.

We have to do positive work for the new generation.

Save Ireland Forests
Static Preview

In Irish mythology, trees are a symbol of wealth. The Irish Government is moving closer to a huge sell-off of the public forests managed by Coillte (The Irish Forestry Board) to private investors. An area greater than 1 million acres, equivalent to two medium sized counties will be lost forever. This will include some of our most valuable native woodlands, wild places and some of the last refuges of our native flora and fauna.  Sign petition here.

Interest has been expressed by Swiss finance company Helvetia Wealth - who own the International Forestry Fund (IFF) - chaired by Bertie Ahern, (ex-prime minister of Ireland) as well as The China Investment Corporation.
