More About Us
The Rainforest Legacy Foundation is a non-profit organization operating from the heart of the Peruvian rainforest. Established in 2021, it is led by a group of Peruvians committed to the sustainable development of the Amazon since 1990. Our mission is to preserve and protect this invaluable ecosystem, recognizing that active engagement and fostering social and economic development within local communities are essential to achieve this.
Approximately 59% of Peru is covered by forest, including more than 68 million ha of tropical rainforest across the Amazon and Andes.Peru is the 9th most biodiverse country in the world with approximately 7% of known animal species and 6.3% of known plant species, of which 7,590 plant species and 725 animal species are endemic to Peru’s unique ecosystems!
We are dedicated to promoting conservation and regeneration practices by working closely and respectfully with Amazonian communities in a collaborative manner. We firmly believe that the preservation of the Amazon rainforest is intertwined with the well-being of its inhabitants. Therefore, we strive to drive projects that promote sustainable development, environmental education, and the appreciation of natural resources.
