They have supported paralegal education and mobile legal aid clinics that have helped over 200 longhouse communities hold off destructive logging and industrial plantations. The Project has coordinated over $500,000 in grants from international sources for community reforestation, organic gardening, territory demarcation, indigenous education, and other village projects.

Mission The Amazon Conservation Team partners with indigenous and other local communities to protect tropical forests and strengthen traditional culture.
Vision They see a future where healthy tropical forests and thriving local communities exist in harmonious relationship with each other, contributing to the well-being of the planet.
Values Responsibility: They believe that conservation is our moral and ethical duty. They are a part of Nature, not apart from it. Nature is our home, not our servant. Determination: They believe that effective conservation always begins on the ground, no matter what. Though they may face difficulties or danger, they do not turn back from their vision or abandon their partners. Interconnection: They believe that tropical forests and the local communities that dwell within them are interdependent parts of one whole. They work to protect and strengthen both. Trust: They succeed because we are invited to collaborate with our partners. Their relationships with the communities endure because they are built on a foundation of unqualified respect, cooperation, and reciprocity. Humility:They seek guidance, hope, and strength from their indigenous elders. They acknowledge that they may never fully understand their realities. Knowledge: They believe that the knowledge and practices of indigenous and local communities are key to conservation. They also believe that traditional knowledge and western technology can work together to manage and protect the forest and strengthen the communities. Continuity:They believe that strong traditional healers and leaders, and the transfer of their knowledge and culture to successive generations, are essential for sustaining their communities, and therefore, the forest.

From the Amazon to the Kalahari, from the jungles of India to the Congo rainforest, we work in partnership with tribal peoples to protect their lives and land. They suffer racism, land theft, forced development and genocidal violence just because they live differently. It must stop.
They reject money from governments and shady corporations so their integrity is never compromised. They fight for tribal peoples’ survival. They stop loggers, miners, and oil companies from destroying tribal lands, lives and livelihoods across the globe. They lobby governments to recognise indigenous land rights. They document and expose the atrocities committed against tribal people and take direct action to stop them.
They give tribal peoples a platform to speak to the world. They have had over 200 victories since 1969, but their work is far from over and they need your help.
Rainforest Connection (RFCx) creates acoustic monitoring systems for those who wish to end illegal deforestation in real-time. Illegal deforestation is a gateway activity to clearing rainforest, one of the primary causes of climate change. According to the UN, up to 90% of logging in tropical rainforests is illegal.
The reason Rainforest Connection starts with a focus on stopping illegal logging is because, in case after case, they have seen first-hand that if you can protect the trees, you end up protecting everything else.
The RFCx monitoring system gives their partners the opportunity to protect key rainforest areas and respond to real-time alerts, while sharing large amounts of ecosystem data that help negotiate increased protections in these areas. In some cases, protecting the perimeter of a rainforest can actually mean protecting everything behind it.
They are dedicated to putting conservation technologies into the hands of committed partners on-the-ground to help combat the destruction of Indigenous reserves which comprise 20% of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, now increasingly targeted by illegal loggers and poachers because they are still intact.
They use recycled cell phones powered by solar energy in trees to detect illegal logging. This allows guards to arrive in 20 minutes to stop the poachers. The alternative to this, satellites to detect the logging, can take up to 2 days to get enforcement people to stop the illegal loggers.
The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive. Founded at its grassroots in the United States in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world. Thanks to more than a million members and the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff and more than 400 scientists, they impact conservation in 72 countries across six continents. Among other things, they buy land to preserve it. This includes rainforest in tropical countries.
Mission To conserve the land and waters on which all life depends. Their vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives.
Tackle Climate Change Global temperatures have sharply risen over the last century, and it is clear that swift, bold action is required to avoid the increasingly severe impacts of climate change.
Protect Land and Water They have helped protect more than 119 million acres of land, countless miles of rivers and streams and the world’s largest oceans. And they plan to protect more by 2025.
Provide Food and Water Sustainably Food demand is expected to increase by more than 50 percent in just the next 30 years as the world’s population continues to grow—it’s a challenge that can be met.
Build Healthy Cities By 2050, two-thirds of people will live in cities. Thoughtful planning, smart growth and nature can generate benefits for communities, for people’s health and for the economy.
Since 1987, the Rainforest Alliance has worked to build a global alliance of people who share their vision of strong forests and thriving communities. Today, they work with rural communities in over 60 countries around the world to conserve forests, support sustainable livelihoods, and restore balance to our planet.
They work with a diverse array of people, companies, and governments to restore balance to the world's most important and vulnerable landscapes. The members of our alliance—from farmers and foresters to businesses and consumers—share a steadfast commitment to finding creative, pragmatic solutions to some of the world's most pressing challenges.
The Rainforest Foundation works on-the-ground to secure land rights for indigenous people. They strengthen indigenous land security and train indigenous communities to use technology to protect their forests. By investing directly in indigenous communities, they connect people who are deeply motivated to conserve their ancestral lands with the tools, training, and resources necessary to protect their rainforests.
The Rainforest Foundation always works in partnership with indigenous communities and organizations. Together, they protect their forests by securing rights to their territories, strengthening sustainable land management and monitoring their forests.
Rainforest Partnership works with local and indigenous communities to keep their trees standing. Their projects leverage the culture, knowledge, and resources of their partners to ensure happy people and healthy forests.
