Seth MacFarlane has given $1,000,000 to Rainforest Trust to further the international conservation organization’s work to protect rainforests and tropical habitat.

“The science is clear on the connection between preventing deforestation and addressing the climate crisis. Rainforest Trust’s commitment to protecting habitat and its inherent biodiversity is fundamentally important. I wanted to support Rainforest Trust’s direct-action approach, and I hope others will join me in supporting this crucial work,” said Mr. MacFarlane.

The Seth MacFarlane Foundation made the gift to Rainforest Trust’s Conservation Action Fund to support the work of establishing protected areas that prevent deforestation and protect habitat, work that is vital for the health, and the future, of the planet.

“Protecting intact forests is the best way to help species and our global ecosystem. Saving rainforests and tropical habitat has been our mission for more than 30 years. We are thrilled that Seth is adding his voice in support of our work. His trust in our ability and the positive impact we make is incredibly meaningful and motivating,” said Rainforest Trust Acting CEO Mark Gruin.

Rainforest Trust’s successful model builds partnerships with local conservation partners to facilitate conservation from the ground up. This year, Rainforest Trust has protected rainforests across the tropics including:
