Since 1989, Rainforest Foundation US has been at the forefront of rights-based forest protection, working with indigenous communities in Central and South America to support their visions of protecting their ancestral lands and fighting the climate crisis.
Rainforest Foundation US recognizes indigenous peoples that have called these forests home for millennia are the best defenders of their ancestral territories. Multiple studies have shown that indigenous controlled rainforests have the lowest rates of deforestation—even lower than that of national parks.
