A century ago, thousands of Javan, Bali and Sumatran tigers roamed the rainforests of Indonesia.

Forget Black Friday. It’s Non-Profit Tuesday! (No, we didn’t make that up.)
The holidays are coming up soon, and you’re probably starting to look for gifts for your loved ones. But—going out on a limb here—I’m willing to bet you don’t want to give a bunch of useless stuff to your friends and family. That’s why we’re excited to offer a variety of gifts that will make a world of difference without crowding our world with more disposable junk.
A Certificate of Action from RAN isn’t stuff—it’s a unique way to support our work to protect rainforests around the world and the people and wildlife that depend on them. You’ll be giving a meaningful gift to a loved one while at the same time doing something good for the planet.
|Action Packed Gifts for 2012|
|Found only in Malaysia and Indonesia, man’s closest relative is being threatened by rapid loss of rainforest habitat. Your gift will support efforts to stop the devastating expansion of paper and palm oil plantations into Indonesia’s tropical forests, saving the lush wild places that orangutans call home.|
|Your gift directly supports the grassroots efforts of historically underfunded organizations and communities struggling to protect their rainforest homelands—known to be the best guardians of the forest. Help ensure that small local organizations and Indigenous federations across the globe are supported in their efforts to protect the world’s remaining rainforests for many generations to come.|
|There are less than 400 Sumatran tigers remaining in the wild and habitat destruction by the pulp and paper industry is a primary cause of their decline. Your gift will support RAN’s campaign to stop the conversion of Indonesia’s stunning and diverse rainforests into a wasteland of single species pulp plantations to make cheap copy paper, books, tissue and toilet paper.|
|The biggest banks are threatening to take us to the edge of an ecological catastrophe if they don’t stop funding coal, the primary driver of climate change. Coal is responsible for 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and poisons the world’s streams, rivers and oceans with mercury, arsenic and other dangerous chemicals. It’s long past time that U.S. banks start funding a renewable energy economy.|
Celebrate the holiday spirit this year by giving a gift that makes a world of difference. Thank you for your ongoing support!
For the rainforests,
P.S. These creative gifts make it easier than ever to support RAN’s work for the environment.
Help us save the last remaining Sumatran tigers and stop KFC from destroying rainforests by making a donation of $5 today.
Last week, over 40,000 online activists sent a message to KFC CEO David Novak asking him to end his company’s relationship with rainforest destruction.
With only 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild, time is running out to save their forest homes from destruction for fast food packaging.
KFC is definitely feeling the heat. KFC restaurants in Indonesia have already cut business ties with notorious rainforest destroyer, Asia Pulp & Paper (APP). But there’s been nothing but a shameful silence from the company’s headquarters in Kentucky. That has to change.
It’s only going to happen if we keep up the pressure. And that’s exactly what we intend to do with your support.
Please make a donation of $5 so that we can continue to put pressure on KFC and save the Sumatran tiger from extinction.
With so few tigers left in the wild, and their habitat disappearing fast, it is important that we act now to protect them.
Greenpeace is funded by people, not corporations, and the success of this campaign depends on activists like you uniting to stand up to corporate greed.
With your support, we’ll fight back with our expert staff on the ground, international market pressure from customers, and worldwide media exposure — but we need to do it now. The Indonesian rainforest, where the only wild Sumatran tigers left on the planet live, is being destroyed every day at an alarming rate. Please donate $5 today to help save the Sumatran tigers by getting KFC to end its relationship with rainforest destruction.
For the forests,
Rolf Skar Greenpeace Forest Campaign Director
Did you know that almost half of all rainforest destruction is done illegally?
|There are only 400 Sumatran tigersremaining in the world and they’re in serious trouble.Help us raise $60,000 by June 8th to save the last Sumatran tigers and their forest homes.|
Only 400 Sumatran tigers are left in the world.
Just 80 years ago, there were three unique subspecies of tigers found in Indonesia. Today, two of them are extinct — and now the last one is in serious trouble.
At these horrifically low numbers, every day counts for the Sumatran tiger.
They need our help now. Please make an urgent donation to help save them.
The Sumatran tiger is classified as “critically endangered” — on the brink of extinction and barely hanging on.
They’ve lost 93% of their habitat because companies like Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) are destroying their forest homes. Tigers are left to roam landscapes where they are easily slaughtered by poachers for their body parts or shot by the people moving in.
How many more acres of destruction can the Sumatran tiger survive before its status moves from “critically endangered” to “extinct”? We have to act, and fast.
To fight back, we need your help to expose the massacre, pressure corporations like KFC to cut ties with APP and fight on the ground in Indonesia to save these last remaining Sumatran tigers.
We can’t wait another day. Not when we’re dealing with a population of only 400 tigers. If we don’t act now, these beautiful animals will be pushed to extinction — gone forever.
Since Greenpeace takes absolutely no money from corporations or governments, we depend entirely on you to power our independent and hard-hitting campaigns. Will you help save these 400 Sumatran tigers?
Please help us raise $60,000 in the next 9 days to make it possible. We need just 100 people from Washington to reach our goal.
Without you, these 400 tigers don’t stand a chance. APP will continue lining its pockets with profits, poachers will continue shooting these tigers and reselling their body parts in places like China, and these last Sumatran tigers will just be collateral damage.
Together, we can stop them.
Make a gift to Greenpeace today.
With the financial help of supporters like you, we’ve already put the squeeze on APP, convincing major companies like Nestle, Kraft and Mattel to stop buying products linked to rainforest destruction. And other companies have followed suit as well.
Over the past few weeks we’ve turned up the pressure on KFC to end their relationship with APP and to stop using rainforest fiber in its throw-away paper products. We’ve hit them in the press, at their corporate headquarters, on the web, over the phone lines and at stores around the world. We have plans to do even more — but we need your support to keep this work going and save the Sumatran tiger.
Please give a gift today to help give these last Sumatran tigers a future — before it’s too late.
Together we’ve rallied to overcome seemingly insurmountable problems and won victories to protect the planet — and I know we can do it again to save the Sumatran tiger.
Together we are powerful, together we make a difference.
For the forests,
Greenpeace Forest Campaign Director
P.S. We need just 100 supporters like you to donate from Washington to meet our goal.
