As part of this initiative, Harley-Davidson is supporting The Nature Conservancy’s work in the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil by helping to plant 110,000 trees through the Plant a Billion Trees Campaign. Brazil’s Atlantic Forest is one of the world’s most fragile and important ecosystems, harboring thousands of species found nowhere else on the planet. Today, this region is facing unprecedented challenges due to urban expansion, agriculture, ranching and illegal logging. The support from Harley-Davidson will help advance the Conservancy’s restoration work in critical headwaters that help to secure clean water for more than 70 percent of Brazil’s population.

“Our riders have always had a passion for the great outdoors,” said Mark-Hans Richer, Harley-Davidson’s senior vice president and global chief marketing officer. “The opportunity to work with The Nature Conservancy was a natural fit as we make strides to improve our sustainability efforts and ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the freedom to ride and enjoy our beautiful natural surroundings.”

Added M. Sanjayan, an avid motorcyclist and lead scientist for The Nature Conservancy, “We are happy to be working with Harley-Davidson and the Renew the Ride initiative. In order to meet the conservation challenges of the future, we need more unique engagements like this one. Protecting the lands and waters on which all life depends is our mission, and working with companies like Harley-Davidson — with a devoted member base and real interest in supporting conservation — will aid us in achieving this mission.”
