A human-centred approach to conservation

The forests - our lifelines - are in peril. And the indigenous communities who depend upon them are suffering. You can help.

Forests for People takes a human-centred approach to rainforest and wildlife conservation. 

Our mission is simple: to help indigenous rainforest communities thrive sustainably in the remaining viable rainforest ecosystems.

Together, we restore important environmental services, reduce conflicts between humans and wildlife, and create job opportunities that support community well-being.

By joining our cause, you can contribute to saving rainforests by empowering the indigenous communities that rely on them.
