Rainforest Partnership helps conserve and restore tropical rainforests by working directly with local communities in our areas of focus to develop sustainable livelihoods that empower, benefit, and respect both people and nature.
The idea for Rainforest Partnership crystallized in 2007 after conducting extensive research and holding in-depth conversations with about 200 people. This inspiration became a collective vision and now RP has dedicated teams and partners in Texas, Peru, Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia and elsewhere with a common goal of fulfilling RP’s mission to protect tropical rainforests.
We successfully partnered with the community of Chipaota in the Peruvian Amazon conserving 9,000 acres by creating a plan to sustainably harvest the piassaba palm fiber - the community’s principal economic asset.
Films For the Forest (F3) is a global short film competition that strives, through the powerful medium of film, to create awareness about the importance of tropical rainforests and the ongoing threats faced by forests and their communities
World Rainforest Day was created in 2017 to celebrate the importance and diversity of rainforests, foster a sense of shared, global responsibility and stewardship, and ignite collective action to protect tropical rainforests around the world.
Gen Z for the Trees (Z4T) is a youth-oriented and entirely youth-led initiative with a bold mission: engage youth on rainforest protection, overcome the oversimplification of conservation work, and shift the narrative on climate change from despair to optimism and action.
Our team is our most powerful form of capital. We bring together volunteers, interns, employees, contractors, pro bono experts, and partners, creating a pool of wealth
designed for resilience.
Our team is the wealth that powers our high-impact engine and enables us to create vast and lasting results at lower costs.
The multitude of backgrounds, voices, talents, and resources each of our team members brings comes together to form a powerful collective patchwork of rainforest partners.
Our role as convener of this wide network makes us nimble, creative, strategic, and bold.
