Rainforest Foundation

Founded in 1989 by Sting and Trudie Styler, The Rainforest Foundation
works to support indigenous and traditional people of the world’s
rainforests in their efforts to protect their environment and fulfill their rights.

Rainforest Foundation

The Rainforest Foundation now works in more than 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Central America and South America.  They have helped local communities protect over 28 million acres of forest – some of the most biodiverse lands on the planet.

They believe that forest protection and human rights are interconnected. They recognize that indigenous peoples around the world are currently living sustainably in what are considered the most “pristine” rainforests. This is not a coincidence. The people who depend on the forest for their livelihoods, culture, and spirituality are careful in their use of the forest. There are no better forests stewards. They believe that the most effective way to protect rainforests is to ensure that the indigenous communities who have historically managed and protected those forests have secure and long term rights to their lands and resources.
