UK broadcaster Sky has signed a three-year agreement with WWF to preserve trees in the Amazon rainforest. Sky Rainforest Rescue is aimed at protecting three million hectares in Brazil, preserving an estimated one billion trees.

Sky is seeking donations, which it has pledged to match pound-for-pound up to a £4million ($6.6m) target.
