You can share a Facebook status about how the media isn't covering the story...or you could actually DO something about it.

Yup - I saw you all sharing that meme yesterday.

Totally fair and you have a point. But, instead of complaining, why don't we all jump into action?

Here are eight ways that we can help the rainforest without traveling to Brazil with a bucket of water:

1. Support the indigenous populations of the Amazon rainforest with Amazon Watch

2. Support arts and science projects through the Amazon Aid Foundation

3. Sign a petition

4. Protect animals through the WWF

5. Reduce your beef consumption; most fast-food burgers are made from rainforest beef

6. Reduce paper and wood consumption

7. Buy land through the Rainforest Trust

8. Protect an acre of land

9.
