Our mission is to protect threatened natural habitats and the biodiversity they contain, together with the indigenous people dependent on them for survival.
We do this through the purchase of land in the name of the local NGO’s or communities, or for private reserves, registering ancestral indigenous territories and establishing ecological corridors to connect fragmented habitats.
As part of our conservation strategy we support local communities, promoting sustainable livelihoods and we are committed to delivering environmental education both in our project areas overseas and in the UK. We also work with research establishments to monitor the progress and success of our strategies.
Key to Rainforest Concern’s principles is working with effective local partners who we carefully select based on our specialist knowledge from years of experience in the field.
We currently work in nine countries; Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Belize, Chile, Romania and India across a variety of critical habitats and the vast biodiversity they support.
