Biennially since 1989, the Rainforest Alliance has offered two years of financial support to a graduate-level scientist whose research strives to understand and enhance the role of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) in community development and forest conservation. Funded through the generosity of Elysabeth Kleinhans, to date the Rainforest Alliance has awarded 12 Kleinhans Fellowships to a diverse group of researchers whose scientific rigour, curiosity and dedication to the well-being of forestdependent communities is second to none.
For 25 years, the Rainforest Alliance has worked to arrest the major drivers of deforestation and environmental destruction. In our 2011 Annual Report, we provide a comprehensive overview of our on-the-ground work and detailed financial information.

Around the world -- in forests and on farms, in kitchens and supermarkets, in classrooms, pressrooms and boardrooms -- the Rainforest Alliance is helping to protect biodiversity, conserve natural resources, reduce climate change and offer economic opportunities to populations in need.
