about our rainforests
Wild and wondrous, rainforests extend from as far as Alaska and Canada to Latin America, Asia and Africa. They nurture thousands of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth and provide life's essentials such as our medicines, food and water. Yet more than half of Earth's original rainforests have been destroyed, victims of unsustainable agriculture, ranching, logging, mining and other destructive practices.
about The Nature Conservancy
The Nature Conservancy's mission is to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive. The Nature Conservancy uses a science-based approach to protect rainforests and other ecosystems, pursuing non-confrontational, pragmatic solutions to conservation challenges. A core component of The Nature Conservancy's conservation approach is its partnerships with indigenous communities, businesses, governments, multilateral institutions, other non-profits ... and people such as yourself.
