The Rainforest Foundation UK was founded in 1989 by Sting and Trudie Styler, after they saw first-hand the impact the destruction of the Amazon rainforests had on the Kayapo Indians’ way of life. This sparked the Foundation’s first campaign which, in 1993, resulted in the protection of 27,359 km² of indigenous peoples’ land. The Foundation has expanded and diversified since, and has worked in more than 20 countries to date towards the mission of “supporting indigenous peoples and traditional populations of the world’s rainforest to protect their rainforest homes and fulfill their rights to land, life and livelihood”.
Deforestation and the destruction of rainforests are major contributing factors in the build-up of CO2 emissions and the warming of our planet. The main focus of the work of the Rainforest Foundation UK is to protect and save the rainforests by working with those who know the forest best – indigenous peoples and traditional forest dwellers. By supporting them, the Foundation is taking a major step forward in the battle to combat climate change.
