Silent land

All the time and money behind this film has been donated by a number of partners of Rainforest Concern, a Registered Charity based in UK, established to protect threatened natural habitats and the biodiversity they contain, together with the indigenous people who still depend on them for survival. Rainforests destruction is causing a quarter of the world’s annual carbon emissions - more than the entire global emissions for planes, trains, automobiles and ships.

If you are looking for an unusual but very proper gift - with just £25 you can also sponsor half an acre. Donations will go towards the purchase and protection of some of the most threatened and species rich rainforest in the world, in partnership with local communities. Recipients of the gift will also get a personalised certificate while those sponsoring 2 acres or more will also receive a Rainforest Concern T-shirt.

The campaign target is to purchase and safeguard 70,000 acres of highly threatened rainforest in North West Ecuador in South America, home to some of the planet's most endangered species. This area, known as the Choco-Andean Corridor, also links two reserves avoiding creating isolated islands of rainforest where animals and plants become trapped and unable to migrate.
