Wildlife Conservation

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser. Rainforest Trust purchases and protects threatened natural habitats around the world and safeguards endangered wildlife through community engagement and local partnerships.

Rainforest Trust is the only non-profit in the United States that focuses primarily on the purchase and protection of rainforest acres. Over the past 30 years, we have protected more than 18 million rainforest acres that we strategically identify as the most threatened regions and the most critical habitat for endangered species.


Working with our partners all across the planet, Rainforest Trust is able to identify key environments under imminent threat of illegal deforestation and poaching.  We move swiftly to purchase and protect these disappearing biodiversity treasures so they may thrive for generations to come.


As one of the most cost-efficient nonprofit organizations in the world, we consistently maintain low administrative overhead (under 10%) by:

  • Employing a small but highly experienced staff
  • Partnering with local, in-country conservation organizations that own and manage the lands. 
  • Board members and key donors support our general operating costs so that 100% of your donation goes to conservation


Our approach has proven successful for 30 years. While ensuring perpetual protection of the land, we work with our partners to build local capacity, engage government and community support, and provide benefit to local communities, all of which result in unusually high levels of conservation and protected areas.
