You can still commemorate earth day 2013 even though it’s technically over. ZENMED is celebrating all week by continuing our fundraising efforts for @nature_org. Tell us what you did to honour Earth Day this year or what you do everyday to help the environment! We’d love to hear from you.
How You Can Help

What is The Plant a Billion Trees Fund?
Five hundred years ago, the Atlantic Forest of Brazil covered approximately 330 million acres (about twice the size of Texas), but today more than 85% of this forest has been cleared and what remains is highly fragmented.
Despite its diminished state, the Atlantic Forest still ranks as a global conservation priority. Although it is just a small fraction of the size of the great Amazon rainforest, the Atlantic Forest still harbors of a range of biological diversity similar to that of the Amazon.
The Nature Conservancy, which has been working in the Atlantic Forest since 1991 with a wide range of partners, has an ambitious plan to protect and restore 30 million acres of this magnificent forest by 2015.
