Xtinctio is proud to be a Conservation Circle Partner of Rainforest Trust, one of the world’s most effective conservation charities. Xtinctio is donating to Rainforest Trust’s Conservation Action Fund, a fund used to support and protect endangered species, threatened rainforests and other tropical ecosystems around the world. Our donations will safeguard real acres of rainforest!
Rainforests are one of the most important natural resources on Earth, and affect the daily lives of everyone on our planet. They safely store billions of tons of carbon, helping to mitigate climate change, stabilize global weather patterns, clean water, and are even a source for modern medicines. Rainforests are also home to 50% of the world’s species, many of which are critically endangered. Thousands of indigenous communities rely on these forests for their food, water and economic prosperity. In short, rainforests help to sustain life on this planet, and their long-term protection is absolutely vital for our survival.
Rainforest Trust ensures the protection of these vital ecosystems through partnerships with local communities and trusted in-country partner NGOs. The charity has already saved over 24 million acres of rainforest and other tropical ecosystems. To find out more, please visit the Rainforest Trust website.
Our first ever conservation partnership was with Orangutan Outreach
and it is still going strong. Orangutan Outreach's mission is to protect orangutans in their native rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra while providing care for orphaned and displaced orangutans until they can be returned to their natural environment. As part of our donation program, every year we "adopt" several orphaned and displaced orangutans which means that we help pay for their care during rehabilitation. You can learn more about the vital work of Orangutan Outreach at https://redapes.org/
Our partner in Ocean Conservation is Coral Restoration Foundation
, the world's largest non-profit marine-conservation organization dedicated to restoring coral reefs to a healthy state. Coral reefs are the backbone of life in the ocean and without them all of ocean life is in jeopardy. Coral reefs have been around for more than 50 million years, yet they could be gone by the end of this century. You can learn more about Coral Restoration Foundation on their website https://www.coralrestoration.org/
Finally, we donate a whopping 20% of profits to the Sheldrick Trust.
Best known for their work to protect elephants, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
operates the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. But they do much more than this, embracing all measures that compliment conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife including anti-poaching, safeguarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness and providing veterinary assistance to animals in need.
