Rainforest Foundation US implements its vision by supporting Indigenous organizations that are intent on protecting their territories. We currently provide direct support to programs and organizations in Peru, Guyana, Brazil, and Panama.
Additionally, RFUS is the principal partner of the Global Alliance of Territorial Communities, which is a coalition of Indigenous groups that represent 400 million Indigenous Peoples in Central & South America, Asia, and Africa. The Global Alliance works to draw increased attention and support for the causes of Indigenous and Traditional Communities committed to defending and managing their territories, which cover approximately 400 million hectares worldwide.
Protecting tropical forests is absolutely vital to the planet if we are to avoid the worse impacts from the climate crisis.
