THE RAINFOREST FOUNDATION
WAS ONE OF THE FIRST ORGANIZATIONS
TO FOCUS ON THE VITAL LINK BETWEEN
PROTECTION OF THE RAINFOREST AND
SECURING THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES.
As deforestation pressures have intensified, providing the support needed for indigenous peoples to remain stewards of their ancestral lands has proven to be very effective in protecting rainforests. Recent data in Brazil showed that the deforestation rate in the Amazon was 1% in indigenous areas versus a 24% outside of those areas!
