The rainforest is a home, a habitat, a shelter and an ecosystem that supports many lives and livelihoods. For the indigenous people and animals that inhabit it, the rainforest is everything. Yet most forest dependent people lack the legal rights to defend their rainforest home. The Rainforest Foundation UK aims to change this.
To date the Rainforest Foundation has protected over 11,700,000 hectares of rainforest by securing rights for forest people. Our work is currently focused in the Congo Basin rainforest in Central Africa and the Andean Amazon region in South America.
You can help us to defend more rainforest for future generations.
