About Rainforest Partnership:
Rainforests are vital for life on Earth. They sustain our climate, natural resources, wildlife, and us. Rainforest Partnership based in Austin, Texas is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and regenerating tropical rainforests. How do we do it? We work directly with rainforest communities to create sustainable economies.

Often, the pressures to clear the forest are hard to resist when there are no good economic alternatives. That's where we come in. Rainforest Partnership's business-centered projects generate an income for the community, giving them a real choice to keep their forest and way of life.
