Each RFCx device protects enough trees from logging to prevent 15 000 metric-tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. This is equivalent to taking 3 000 cars off the road.  Each RFCx device can protect an area of forest so large that it is home to over 1000 different species of plants and animals. It could also focus on creating partnerships that empower indigenous populations working to protect their homelands from encroachment, logging and poaching.
