Our organisation

Our mission?
Rainforest Trust saves endangered wildlife and protects our planet by creating rainforest reserves through partnerships, community engagement and donor support.
How do we measure the impact of our work?
We protect the most threatened tropical forests, working with local communities to create a global impact and fight climate change. Every action we take now to protect rainforests will have a lasting impact on the future by maintaining our planet’s critical ecosystems. Tropical rainforests support over 50% of the world’s species and are home to thousands of communities who rely on the forests for food, water and economic prosperity. Rainforests also absorb and safely store billions of tonnes of carbon, helping to fight climate change. In short, they are one of the most important natural resources on Earth, and their long-term protection is vital for the the survival of our planet and the countless species that inhabit it – including us.
