Rainforest Campaigners

A new Rainforest Portal dedicated to protection of the world's remaining tropical rainforests and the rights of their inhabitants.

Rainforest Bio
Visit RainforestBio to purchase wild herbs and experience the vitality of the Rainforest for yourself. The company, the Amazon Herb Company works hand-in-hand with 14 indigenous Rainforest tribes in the Upper Amazon Basin of Peru. Native partners ecologically harvest Rainforest herbs as a sustainable alternative to logging, thus making the Rainforest more valuable alive than dead, preserving their cultures and getting deeds to their lands. Share in this mutually beneficial circle of commerce and help preserve the Rainforest.

The Amazon Herb Company has already helped save over 300,000 acres of Rainforest land. They are working hard to make a difference. Visit their website at Rainforest Bio and sample some of the most beautiful herbs that the Earth has offered to us, without it costing the Earth to bring to your home.

It was founded in 1989, and its patrons are Sir David Attenborough and David Gower OBE.

Logging Story
See what we have done to save the ecosystem that has been damaged by illegal logging a few years ago, and see also how the community rejoiced with the results already obtained from these ecosystems which have almost recovered.

Rainforest Information Centre
We are a a non-profit, volunteer organisation dedicated to the protection of the Earth's remaining rainforests and the indigenous people who depend on them. The Rainforest Information Centre (RIC) was born out of the successful struggle to save the sub-tropical rainforests of New South Wales, Australia in the early 1980s. Since then they have been involved in campaigns and projects which protect rainforests and at the same time recognise the legitimate development aspirations of rainforest peoples.

Sarayaku Community
This is the official website of the Sarayacu Community. Sarayacu is struggling for its life, its future as a people & its rainforest. It is located in Pastaza Province, the one province in Ecuador that is rainforest that still fairly intact. And Sarayacu land has never been mined, logged or exploited, it is primarily virgin rainforest so full of biodiversity & still endangered animals, it is so important that it is saved & that the traditional peoples there are allowed to live their life in the forest in harmony which is their home. Its location is remote, access only by plane half hour or canoe 3 days, so the leaders have to do all activities & mobilizations from the nearest city of Puyo. Sarayacu needs support on all levels, moral, economic, volunteers. Sarayacu is the one community that is standing strongly against the destruction by the oil companies CGC/ChevronTexaco. The resistance is amazing and we do need all the help we can get.

La Reserva Forest Foundation
The La Reserva Forest Foundation is a volunteer effort to regenerate indigenous tropical forests in Costa Rica. It began nine years ago on a 100 acre dairy farm overlooking Lake Arenal, in the province of Guanacaste (north central) Costa Rica. In our early years we planted tree bridges to connect the few forest islands that remained on our farm, noting that animals could then move from one stand of trees to other forested areas without exposing themselves to predators on the ground. This inspired us in 1998, to allow forests to regenerate naturally on the entire property, creating a private reserve. La Reserva is dedicated to reversing the widespread conversion of tropical forest to farmland, recognizing that we are stewards of the natural world, not just its consumers. We call our work ?oxygen farming? because forests produce oxygen and absorb CO2, thus helping to curb global warming. Please donate to this great foundation!
