Review for Rainforest Partnership, Austin, TX, USA
I am a senior at the University of Texas at Austin and last year I studied abroad in Ecuador. As part of my program I had to complete an independent study project during the last month of the semester. For my project, I decided to venture to the Amazon and spend four weeks following spider monkeys. While I was in the Jungle (and falling in love with it) I received an email from my school advisor saying that the Rainforest Partnership was looking for interns. It was a sign! While I was sad to leave the monkeys, anacondas and mysterious night noises behind, I was excited to be able to keep my connection with the Amazon in my own home town. The Rainforest Partnership is an incredible organization with a beautiful desire to save the rainforest. We all know how important the rainforest is, but RP is one of the few organizations in this world willing to actually take on the very difficult challenge of actually doing something about it. In the end, RP is successful because it is run by passionate, intelligent and inspired people who understand what is truly important in this world.
