ABOUT THIS STATE
With just 29% of the earth’s surface covered in land, but with 80% of all living species being land-based, it is imperative we respect and look after our environment.
The ways in which our societies function is having an overwhelmingly negative effect on our planet, and the other species with which we share it. Between 1970 and 2014, global populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians declined by around 60%. Due to humans’ overexploitation of different species, forests, oceans and other aspects of nature, many species are rapidly nearing extinction, and our current rate of consumption will lead to more and more disappearing from our planet.
It is crucial that we start caring more for our planet, acting with a little more thought for the creatures and environments we have devastated in recent years. To this end, we want to give you the chance to conserve an area of the Amazon in line with our Land Cause, outlined below.
HAVE BEEN RECLAIMED SO FAR
We want your FourState Points to be used for good, to continue your positive impact on the planet and the people living on it. Conserving our environment should be at the forefront of everyone’s mind, so, by donating 20 points, you can preserve 20 metres squared of the Amazon Rainforest.
As the largest tropical rainforest in the world, the Amazon covers over 1.4 billion acres. 10% of known species live in this environment, including around 2 and a half million different insect species and over 40,000 different species of plant. At present, the Amazon’s area loses the equivalent of 50 football pitches every minute and, unless we act now, it is estimated that over 50% of the Amazon may be lost by 2030.
Our partner, World Land Trust works with a range of carefully selected conservation organisations on the ground, who purchase the land reclaimed by you. Wildlife rangers then patrol the land to ensure it is free from poaching, cattle encroachment and illegal logging.
