Preserving our biodiversity
Rainforest Concern was established in 1993 to protect threatened natural habitats, the biodiversity they contain and the indigenous people who still depend on them for their survival. At present the organisation has 17 conservation projects in 9 countries: Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Belize, Romania, Costa Rica, India. We work closely with local conservation organisations in these countries to protect rainforests.
The world's tropical rainforests are the richest and most diverse habitats on earth. They represent a vast reservoir of knowledge and contain a wealth of ecosystems and wildlife, with many species still undiscovered.
Central to Rainforest Concern’s philosophy is the establishment of strong partnerships with small yet dynamic organisations in the countries where it operates. Such long-term partnerships have repeatedly shown to result in the continued success of projects.
