Protecting wildlife means protecting their homes, which are being threatened by deforestation and global warming. This is why Wildlife Works is engaged in the business of creating and selling carbon offset credits.
UN climate change talks point to high hopes for an initiative in which Wildlife Works has been a leader for the past 2 years. The program is called REDD (Reduced Emissions From Deforestation and Degradation), a set of standards that support the¬†marketplace for Carbon Offsets¬†as a sustainable and scaleable funding mechanism for biodiverse forest protection.
In the Spring of 2011, Wildlife Works, a GOLD level awarded biodiversity project developer, will offer direct-to-consumer carbon offset credits created from the forest and community projects that we manage.
