Naturarvet (Natural Heritage)
Climate Change, Wildlife
Naturarvet collects donations in order to buy and preserve Swedish old-growth forests with high conservation value. The organisation’s statutes guarantee that all forest land purchased by Naturarvet is preserved for all time.
Naturarvet’s ambition is to give everyone an opportunity to take part in preserving Sweden's last old-growth forests.
Leaving Swedish old-growth forest untouched by man makes sure the hughe amounts of carbon stored in the ground stays in the ground and that the forest may continue to fix carbon into wood that will not break down in centuries to come, but rather build more of the carbon storage sequestered into the moss-covered ground, full of mycelium and organic matter. Preserving old-growth forests is one of the most effective things you can do for the climate.
