WE BELIEVE THAT PREVENTING FURTHER DEFORESTATION IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE.
WHY PROTECT FORESTS?
Every single organism depends directly or
indirectly on trees for their survival. Trees and forests are the foundation of biodiversity, which is essential to the cycle of life. In reciprocity, high biodiversity supports the health of a forest. Trees provide food, shelter, medicine and clean our air. Trees absorb carbon and release oxygen, hydrate our air and filter our water. They are also an essential part of the ecosystem that support natural flood and landslide control. Forests support human life where ever you are in the world.
Despite these crucial benefits, we are losing a forest area the size of New York City every 48 hours.
In fact, deforestation is responsible for 10% – 15% of all global warming emissions.
We can't meet our climate goals without stopping deforestation.
By 2030, deforestation would need decline by more than three-quarters to maintain our global temperature increase below 1.5 degrees C.
FOREST PROTECTION CREDITS
Offsetting unavoidable emissions as part of a comprehensive and transparent emissions reduction plan towards a net-zero goal is most impactful with Forest Protection Credits - carbon credits that prevent further deforestation. Helping to stop deforestation is the most direct action you can take to fight climate change and safeguard our net-zero future.
REDD+ is an acronym for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation, a UN-envisioned Climate Change mitigation strategy designed to protect forests that would otherwise be destroyed and thereby avoid the release of CO2 emissions that harm the environment.

WHY OFFSET WITH WILDLIFE WORKS?
Wildlife Works owns the entire lifecycle of our carbon projects internally; from project origination, validation, on-the-ground management, to sales.
This means we work directly in the field with the community, protecting wildlife and forests (no middlemen).
We are the world’s first to deliver certified REDD+ credits.
Wildlife Works offset purchases go directly to protecting forests and communities in Kenya and the Congo.

OFFSET WITH WILDLIFE WORKS : BATTLE CLIMATE CHANGE AND PROTECT THE MOST VULNERABLE
Wildlife Works Carbon Credits protect 5M acres of forest. These forests provide safe haven for elephants, bonobos, lions, cheetahs and many more iconic species. The sale of credits go directly to supporting over 500 local jobs and reducing over 9.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
