Rainforest Trust UK

Rainforest Trust UK


It’s a well-known fact that rainforests are hotspots for biodiversity, teeming with endangered wildlife. They also play a vital role in storing and sequestering vast quantities of carbon from our atmosphere. But despite this, it’s estimated that 70,000 acres of rainforest are destroyed every day for logging, agricultural, mining and development purposes.

Rainforest Trust UK works in partnership with Rainforest Trust in the US to protect these incredible ecosystems. To date Rainforest Trust has protected over 37 million acres, and aims to protect another 125 million acres by 2025. At the crux of the organisation’s approach is land acquisition. By converting threatened land into private reserves, national parks and community managed areas, they’re able to leave the rainforest untouched as vital habitat for endangered species and protection against climate change.

Why we think they’re great

We’re right behind Rainforest Trust's bottom-up approach, as they always work in partnership with trusted local NGOs and indigenous communities. In doing so they’ve created a sustainable model which respects not only the rainforests, but also the communities who call them home.
