Save an Hectare Project
Rainforest Rescue is a not-for-profit organization saving the world’s rainforests for current and future generations. Together with partner organizations, Rainforest Concern (UK) and Rainforest Information Centre (Aust) we are protecting cloudforests in northern Ecuador. Through the purchase of forested land we are saving countless plants and animals from the devastating effects of forest clearing, mining and unsustainable agriculture. Additional benefits of this project are the ecotourism initiatives and sustainable agriculture programs.

The purchase of 20,000 hectares of forest will complete the Choco-Andean Rainforest Corridor. Every $200 saves a whole hectare. To make your contribution visit:
