Are you ready to make a difference and defend the rainforest?
Home to flora and fauna found nowhere else on earth, rainforests are a home, a habitat, a shelter, a pharmacy, and a supermarket, which millions of people worldwide depend upon for their livelihoods and survival.
At RFUK, we work with indigenous and forest communities to tackle deforestation, helping them to gain land rights, defend their forests, and protect their environment.
And you can help!
There are lots of exciting fundraising ideas your school can use to support the Rainforest Foundation UK! Check-out our kit with directions, ideas, posters and other materials for you to have fun while helping communities protect their ancestral rainforest homes. And if you need any more advice, don't hesitate to get in touch!
Geography and Ecology
Although they cover less than 2% of earth’s surface, rainforests are home to half of all terrestrial biodiversity
KILLINGHALL PRIMARY SCHOOL
Teacher Joel Standeven organised a fundraiser with his class, after engaging his students during grammar class. He wrote to us: "During our rainforest topic work in year four we became increasingly aware of the damage being caused to rainforests across the world and the beautiful animals habitats and peoples lives being damaged by the effects of deforestation. After reading a range of news articles, the pupils wanted to do something to help, not just in our local environment but further afield! After finding the Rainforest Foundation UK's website, we became even more inspired to help.
