Rainforest Rescue is a nonprofit organization actively committed to preserving rainforests,
protecting their inhabitants, and furthering social reforms. Since 1986, we have been interfering
with the business interests of timber and cattle barons, oil and mining companies, Western banks
and corrupt politicians. They all stand to make quick profits from the destruction of rainforests,
while nomads, rubber tappers, indigenous tribes and small farmers are robbed of their livelihoods.
Without international assistance, rainforest dwellers are often powerless. They frequently face discrimination as ethnic minorities and lack the financial resources to assert their rights.
We focus on:
We cooperate with the following NGOs:
