We Are All Interconnected

What's at Stake

An alarming number of Earth's magnificent animal and plant species are headed for extinction. We're losing thousands upon thousands of species every year, with up to 50 percent of all species at risk of disappearing completely by 2050.  Whether and how we protect biodiversity has profound implications for the complex web of life on Earth.

Our Work

Our Work: Wildlife

The Rainforest Alliance protects biodiversity through landscape management that helps conserve standing forests, rejuvenate degraded land, and protect rivers and streams. We've trained more than 1 million farmers in methods that boost the productivity of the land, thereby preventing agricultural expansion and the destruction of vital forest habitat.

Community Forestry and Wildlife Conservation

Rich in biodiversity, the Congo Basin is home to thousands of different wildlife species. In Cameroon’s southern region, near the Campo-Ma’an National Park and the Dja Biosphere Reserve, the Rainforest Alliance is working with local communities so they can earn livelihoods while conserving the neighboring forest—home to several endangered species such as lowland gorillas, forest elephants, and bonobos.

Our Impact

Our Impact

The Rainforest Alliance works with forest communities, farmers, companies, and governments worldwide to support thriving, biodiversity-rich ecosystems. Various studies conducted in our partner communities around the world demonstrate that our unique approach to forest conservation improves wildlife habitat.

50% More Tree Species on Certified Coffee Farms

A study of 86 coffee farms in Santander, Colombia, found that Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms had 50 percent more tree species than their noncertified counterparts. Greater tree diversity creates robust biodiversity corridors that provide habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife.
