Sync Studios and Cool Earth have worked together to create an all time first in app technology for the iPhone and iPod Touch connecting you with the rainforest.
Every time you purchase the Cool Tree app you are securing a real tree in the Amazon rainforest. You get a certificate of sponsorship for your real tree located in the Ashaninka region of the Peruvian jungle.
This area of the Amazon is experiencing rapid deforestation but through supporting the rainforest charity Cool Earth you can keep trees standing. You can protect their vital role in the planet’s survival, help cut CO² emissions, preserve wildlife along with the livelihoods of many rainforest communities.
Once you have planted your Virtual tree, help raise it to a huge wonder of nature by managing its water, light, pollination and fruit, and help protect it from loggers and other threats.
Once you have grown and protected your tree, you can view your real tree's location via satellite through Google-Maps from within the app.
CHOOSE YOU FAVOURITE SPECIES.
Choose which species of tree you want to grow and protect, from a list of the most endangered and important trees in the Amazon.
Scroll through the cards to find out more information and facts about your tree and see detailed photos of your selection.
PLANT, GROW AND PROTECT YOUR TREE.
Plant your tree, then keep it healthy by making sure it gets plenty of water and sunlight. You also need to pollinate its flowers so it grows into a healthy adult tree.
Help the local community collect the fruit and protect it from loggers, cattle farmers, palm oil developers and other threats.
With weather conditions, day and night cycles and much more, not only is it great fun to play but a great way to relax knowing that you are helping to make a difference to the world at the same time!
SHARE YOUR TREE WITH THE WORLD.
You can share your tree with your friends and see how theirs are doing with the built in Facebook and Twitter functionality allowing you to upload images of your current tree.
VIEW YOUR SAVED TREE FROM SPACE.
The price of the Cool Tree includes the cost of saving one real tree in the Amazon through Cool Earth. You can view the location of your tree at any time through Google Maps.
Online connection required to obtain your certificate.
