What Does It Mean?

Fall trees

The average tree conserved through the Nature Conservancy’s Carbon Offset Program will sequester up to 7.5 metric tons of CO2 over its lifetime.  By comparison, a roundtrip flight from New York to London will emit about 1 metric ton of CO2 per passenger.


Where does my money go?

Rio Bravo Climate Action Project

This 15,558 acre conservation project, located in northwest Belize, reduces carbon dioxide emissions through the protection of forest lands threatened by conversion to agriculture. The project provides important habitat for 200 species of trees, 400 species of birds, 70 species of mammals and 39 species of concern including the jaguar, puma, margay, ocelot, and howler and spider monkeys.

Clinch Valley Conservation Forestry Program

This program protects and manages 22,000 acres of working forestlands in southwestern Virginia, which support important wildlife species like black bear, provide clean water for people and globally rare aquatic species, and sustain local timber jobs and economies.
