Rainforest Foundation US

The Rainforest Foundation protect the rainforests of Central and South America by working with the indigenous communities that call them home.

Human life depends on our rainforests. They are vital to the stability of our climate. Rainforests are carbon sinks that surpass our most sophisticated technology; they absorb 30% of the world’s CO2 emissions each year.

Rainforests are also home to more than half of the world’s animal and plant species. They are a constant source of life-saving medicines. Millions of indigenous peoples depend on the forest for their survival, including our planet’s last uncontacted cultures.

Despite rainforests importance, they are disappearing. Today, we have lost more than half of earth’s original rainforests—every year we lose an area of tropical forest the size of New York State.

But together we are making a difference. To date, we have protected more than 33 million acres of rainforest. Indigenous communities of the rainforest are fighting back, holding the front line for all of us. With your support, Indigenous communities can protect the forests we all depend on for generations to come.

Rainforest Foundation US Mission

The Rainforest Foundation works on-the-ground to secure land rights for indigenous people. They strengthen indigenous land security and train indigenous communities to use technology to protect their forests. By investing directly in indigenous communities, They connect people who are deeply motivated to conserve their ancestral lands with the tools, training, and resources necessary to protect their rainforests.

The Rainforest Foundation always works in partnership with indigenous communities and organizations. Together, they protect their forests by securing rights to their territories, strengthening sustainable land management and monitoring their forests.

They:

  • Supply legal and technical support so that indigenous communities have the information needed to make decisions and influence public policy.
  • Build networks of indigenous technical experts who manage and analyze satellite data, monitor their forests and take action to keep illegal loggers, miners, and traffickers off of their ancestral lands.
  • Support leaders and indigenous institutions, the cornerstone of effective advocacy and community-based conservation.
  • Provide on-the-ground equipment and training to partners so they can use smartphone, drone and satellite technology in defense of their land.
