The world loses 1 acre of rainforest per second. Help end this & take the Live Below the Line challenge. Please visit

Millions of indigenous peoples around the world depend on rainforests for their health, well being, and livelihoods. But the world loses 1 acre of rainforest each second.

The Rainforest Foundation helps indigenous people protect and defend their lands and livelihoods. We work in partnership with indigenous groups to secure rights to their lands, influence laws and policies to protect their resources, and build strong and sustainable community leadership.
