Our Partnership With The Nature Conservancy
Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants have teamed up with The Nature Conservancy to promote its commitment to forest protection and restoration. We are working with this outstanding nonprofit organization to raise funds and generate awareness for their Plant a Billion Trees campaign. The Nature Conservancy has aligned with local and international conservation organizations and a host of public and private partners to bring about the rebirth of the Atlantic forest through the implementation of a large-scale forest restoration plan to plant a billion trees and conserve millions of acres in protected areas.
The Atlantic Forest and the Plant a Billion Trees Campaign
The Atlantic Forest is located along the Atlantic coast of Brazil, and in some parts of Argentina and Paraguay. In 2003, the Center for Applied Biodiversity Science described this as one of the most threatened tropical forests on the planet. Centuries ago the forest covered nearly 580,000 square miles – an area the size of the U.S. eastern seaboard from Maine to South Carolina. Today only seven percent remains, much in isolated fragments. While these last stands of lush forest harbor a wealth of biodiversity, they also represent a treasury of dwindling resources. The Nature Conservancy has embarked on their Plant a Billion Trees campaign, in a vast effort to revitalize this seriously depleted natural resource.
