Rainforest Trust was established in 1988 to save rainforests and other threatened tropical habitats that are critical for saving the most endangered species. Celebrating 24 years of lasting conservation action, we are proud to say that we have directly saved over 7 million acres across 17 countries and 67 sites. Rainforest Trust has been consistently awarded the top 4-star Charity Navigator rating.
