Rainforest Partnership
April 19, 2010

I have been volunteering with Rainforest Partnership since Aug 2009 and it has been an incredible experience! It is not every day that you come across people who are not only passionate and highly enthusiastic but are actually working towards protecting tropical rainforests. This organization has given me the chance to make a difference to the lives of people in Ecuador and Peru – the two communities they currently serve. Recognizing that the primary threat to rainforests is economic- they work hard to create sustainable economic development alternatives to deforestation. Their motto is : “Be nice! Have fun! Make a difference!” and they really do!
