Rainforests stretch a vast canopy of green over one third of the planet. They are home to 80% of the world’s terrestrial species of animals, insects and plants and there are around 33 million people who know the rainforest as home. It is essential that the rainforest stays that way.

"The forest is our resources which belong to all community members. It is the legacy we leave to future generations. It will always be needed for all the people who live from the forest." - Cesar Bustamante, Cutivireni
"The children are beginning to understand now what's so important about the forest. That's where the birds and animals live. In the future they will raise awareness and keep the forest just as it is.” Thomas Damaina, Community Member, Wabumari
