The strong, on-the-ground presence of our partners, Fellows and Guardians allows for proper land management, community outreach and day-to-day operation of the protected areas.
PROTECTING 1.9 MILLION ACRES LAST YEAR WASN’T OUR ONLY ACHIEVEMENT.
WE ALSO LAID THE GROUNDWORK FOR MORE CONSERVATION SUCCESSES IN THE YEARS TO COME.
EACH TREE PROTECTED STORES CARBON AND IS HOME TO WILDLIFE RANGING FROM FROGS TO PARROTS TO BEETLES.
WE’VE ALWAYS HAD A FOCUS ON SPECIES PROTECTION, IN BOTH UNIQUE, THREATENED HABITATS AND HYPERDIVERSE HOTSPOTS.
THE CARBON WE SECURED LAST YEAR WAS EQUAL TO THE YEARLY AVERAGE EMISSIONS OF 40.1 MILLION CARS IN THE UNITED STATES –
ALMOST TWICE AS MANY CARS AS IN CALIFORNIA.

Thanks to the generous support of our Board members and other supporters who cover all of our operating expenses, Rainforest Trust is able to allocate 100% of donations to conservation action. No board member receives financial benefit and our staff salaries are modest.
