Where are the rainforests?
Rainforests extend as far north as Canada and as far south as Chile. Cool Earth focuses specifically on the protection of tropical rainforest, which is the most at risk and which lies between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer. Rainforests used to cover 12% of the world's land surface but today cover just 5%.
Tropical rainforests are found in the Amazon, Central Africa and South East Asia. However three countries, Brazil, Indonesia and the Democratic Republic of Congo, contain almost half of the world's tropical rainforests.
