Our Mission Partners
and International Partners
We’re a connector and nexus of ideas and resources with rainforest communities, governments, NGO’s, experts from across the spectrum of subjects, individuals, foundations and businesses.
Our work is powerful and possible because of our partners, because we bring together smart combinations of resources that enable tropical rainforest protection through projects that are tailored to each community in which we work. We leverage what each partner brings to us to undertake tropical rainforest protection projects that work, not just now, but for the long term. These partnerships provide us with funding, connections, knowledge, promotion, event space, visibility, marketing, food and beverage, and more.
Our appreciation for our partners is unbounded–Check out how they’re working with us to make tropical rainforest protection possible. We’re looking for mission partners who share our vision of thriving rainforests and a healthy, vibrant planet and who want to be part of this global movement through their organization’s work. Connect with us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
