Rainforest Trust protects threatened rainforests and tropical
habitat to save endangered wildlife through community
engagement and local partnerships.
Rainforest Trust establishes strategic partnerships with the
world’s most experienced and committed conservationists.
Our partners’ intimate knowledge of their regions’
ecosystems and local communities is key to achieving long-
term land and species protection. Together, we identify
critical sites that provide a permanent refuge for endangered
species. These biodiverse areas face immediate and direct
threats, typically from loggers, miners or ranchers. Protection
requires swift action, and we work with our partners to
develop scientifically-based conservation plans that are not
only timely, but also resilient and sustainable. Our partners
work closely with their national governments and local
communities to formally establish reserves protecting the
land. These protected areas are established through direct
land purchase and acquisition, the designation of national
parks and other government protected areas, land titling or
the creation of community conservation areas. But the
creation of a new protected area is only the beginning. We
are committed to providing lasting, on-the-ground protection,
which requires the ongoing support and participation of local
communities. These communities are engaged through the
creation of sustainable economic opportunities for local men
and women, including training as forest guards, wildlife
monitors and ecotourism guides.
