Rainforests are home to thousands of indigenous communities who rely on the forests for their food, water and economic prosperity. Many of these communities and their forests are under threat from illegal logging, mining, oil and gas extraction and agriculture. Rainforest Trust works with trusted local NGOs to protect these forests by having them designated as Community Reserves or National Parks. The charity has also helped indigenous communities in Latin America obtain legal land titling rights to their ancestral lands, which allows the communities to manage their forest resources more sustainably.
Rainforest Trust is one of the world’s most respected and successful conservation charities and works in partnership with trusted local NGOs and indigenous communities to save the world’s most threatened rainforests and tropical ecosystems. Rainforest Trust has been protecting rainforests for over 30 years and has already placed over 24 million acres of threatened habitat under permanent protection. All donations to Rainforest Trust are doubled by a generous supporter through the charity’s SAVES Challenge.
Rainforest Trust UK is a British charity working in partnership with Rainforest Trust in the U.S. to protect the world’s most threatened rainforests and other tropical ecosystems. Rainforest Trust UK guarantees that 100% of all donations are directed towards direct conservation action, as all its operating expenses are covered by its board members and Gift Aid.
