Size of Wales aims to bring everyone in Wales together to help sustain an area of tropical forest the size of Wales as part of a national response to climate change.

‘An area the size of Wales’ is frequently used to measure the rate of forest destruction. Through Size of Wales, we aim to turn that negative use of the country’s size on its head, by encouraging the people of Wales to take positive action and help protect an area of rainforest equivalent to the size of our nation.

An environmental charity, Size of Wales unites communities, businesses, organisations and schools to help protect 2 million hectares of rainforest and forge lasting links with some of the world’s poorest people.

Supporters of Size of Wales are linked directly to rainforest projects and communities to assist sustainable management of forest resources and to make a significant contribution to reducing global carbon emissions. Our forest protects help conserve existing tropical forests across Africa and South America, as well as support local communities to increase forest cover for the benefit of people, wildlife and soils. The total area of the forest projects adds up to the 2 million hectare target – equivalent to the size of Wales.
