Join Rainforest Partnership as we protect tropical rainforests in some of the most critical places on Earth for biodiversity and climate sustainability.

Niyanta Spelman, founder and CEO of Rainforest Partnership

Tropical rainforests make up less than 3% of the Earth's surface area, yet they are disproportionately critical to the balance and well-being of the entire planet. Regulating global water cycles and weather patterns, they store billions of tons of carbon, and they house over 50% of all terrestrial biodiversity in diverse and complex ecosystems. The world is losing about 10,000 acres of Amazon rainforests a day, in spite of their critical role.

Protecting standing tropical rainforests is a climate solution that yields some of the greatest impact per dollar and plays a vital role in our collective future. If we are going to change the course of the dual existential crisis of biodiversity loss and climate change, there is no time left to waste.

The good news? Protecting standing forests is what we do best at Rainforest Partnership — and we need your help.

Our Work

Rainforest Partnership is a high-impact nonprofit organization that protects, conserves, and regenerates tropical rainforests in the Amazon. By partnering with local and indigenous communities as economic participants and guardians, we renew the essential relationship between people and nature and restore hope through transformative action.

Since 2007, our team has been working in the rainforests in Peru and Ecuador, building powerful, trust-based partnerships and community-based projects that enable ground-up, measurable, and long-term rainforest protection, management, and restoration.

Our Partners

We work with local and indigenous communities and with local organizations and governments at all levels. Through our comprehensive 360-degree approach, we work to understand their needs and challenges, determine the most effective ways to achieve our shared goal of protecting forests, and develop thoughtful, durable, and mutually agreed upon plans of action.

Our Collective Impact

Together, we have the potential to create immediate and lasting impact, and a track record that shows we know how to execute for real results. In 2021 alone, our work led to the conservation and durable protection of 1.16 million acres of rainforest in Peru and Ecuador. Our long-stated goal — now embraced by 145 countries — is to end deforestation entirely and reverse forest loss by 2030.
