Where the funds were spent:

As the official charity of the Adventurists, Cool Earth works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.

The Ralliers this year raised funds for Cool Earth’s Ashaninka Project. Situated in the Rio Ené Valley of central Peru, the region is one of Peru’s worst deforestation hotspots. Cool Earth is working with fifteen Ashaninka villages to ensure rainforest protection goes hand in hand with better lives – empowering them to be in the position where they can turn away the loggers.

The 2013 Mongol Rally is supporting Cool Earth’s Saving Rainforest – Strengthening Lives campaign. This is bringing access to healthcare for the 15 villages in the project. Of these, 14 have no medical facilities and the nearest hospital is more than 10 hours travel from the closest community. With half of Peru’s indigenous population dying before they reach 40 years-old and with infant mortality twice the national average, this will make a real difference to the lives of Cool Earth’s indigenous partners.

SAYING IT IN TREES

This year’s Ralliers saved 261,625 rainforest trees. These trees are some of the most sought after in the world – with prized species such as mahogany, cedar, capirona and tornillo. This will have locked in over 280,000 tonnes of CO2.

What’s more, the way Cool Earth works is by forming shields of forest to make neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers. The forest saved by this year’s Mongol Rally is forming a protective shield to safeguard more than 10,000 acres of at-risk rainforest.

From all at Cool Earth -  a huge thank you for the world saving difference that you are making
