    The Rainforest Foundation supports indigenous peoples and traditional populations of the world's rainforest in their efforts to protect their environment and fulfil their rights to land, life and livelihood.

  • From Trudie Styler:

    "I was delighted to get involved with this appeal and take the opportunity to explain how the groundbreaking mapping work carried out by the Rainforest Foundation UK is protecting rainforests in the Congo Basin".

    Making Maps

    "With maps we can demonstrate that we are forest people, and the forest is our land".
    Leonard Odambo, Co-ordinator of Indigenous Peoples Organisation

    The whole community comes together to make a map on the ground. Using stones and sticks they mark important areas such as rivers, hunting and fishing areas or sacred grounds.
