Guarding Our Forests

Rainforest Trust Conservation Fellows & Guardians work tirelessly to patrol and secure our protected areas.

Their critical roles require surveying land, clearing invasive species, monitoring wildlife populations, removing snares and traps, preventing illegal logging and more.

• Supply uniforms to keep Guardians comfortable and protected in the field.

• Provide technology like handheld data collection devices.

• Conduct training programs to assist in better collection of data.

• Deliver Guardian kits that contain solar lanterns, water bottles, carabiners and other items needed in the field.
