The campaign will have great public appeal as the Phoenix Park celebrates its 350th Anniversary in 2012.

The Phoenix Park consists of 1750 acres and if you multiply that 200 times you get a picture of just how much forests we have taken from developing economies - and we have being doing it for 350 years at least.

For every €10 you give Size of wales will double it to €20


Ending poverty starts with US

Just €2 will protect an area of rain forest the size of Croke Park

SOPP is all about protecting natural resources for our children


Anyone who wishes can support Size of Phoenix Park is as many ways as creativity allows. Universities, second level colleges, primary and secondary schools, charities, NGO’s, government departments, small, medium and large business, in fact anyone can get involved.

Broadly speaking there are two distinct partner groups and in some cases both overlap-in other words you can be involved in both groups.

It's an astonishing fact that an area of rainforest the size of Croke Park disappears every second. Illegal logging is often seen as one of the driving forces.


2EURO will help protect one hectare of rainforest - that's the same size as Croke Park.


It’s time to play fair and give people in developing countries a fair deal and a fair price for their forest resources.

We love it that people in Ireland want to join us to help protect tropical forests and are very happy to help Just Carbon get going. It will take more than Wales and Ireland to protect the world’s forests but between us we can set a good example to the rest of the world.


Every time supporters of Just Carbon donate another €1414 to help protect another 707 Hectares (the size of Phoenix Park) between now and March 31st 2013 we will match it pound for pound or euro for euro and give it to one of the twenty forest conservation projects we are supporting.


Once it takes off we can allocate one particular forest area that Irish contributions will go to so you will know exactly where the tropical Phoenenix Parks are. Many thanks to Just Forests for making this happen.
