Our founder and MD, Louise Morriss, has become Chair of Trustees for the Rainforest Foundation UK (RFUK).
RFUK works to ensure the long-term protection of rainforests by securing the rights of indigenous and forest peoples to land, life and livelihood. The charity supports hundreds of communities to defend the lands on which they live, from forest destruction, land theft and resource exploitation.
Founded in 1989 by Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, after they saw first-hand the destruction of the Amazon Rainforests, the Rainforest Foundation helps forest communities gain land rights, challenge logging companies, manage their forests and protect their environment. Globally, the organisation campaigns to influence national and international laws to protect rainforests and their inhabitants.
