Run for the Rainforest! Join our Rainforest Concern team and help us protect threatened forests, indigenous communities and endangered plants and animals.
Rainforest Concern has helped to protect over 2.2 million hectares (5 million acres) of rainforest around the world since the charity was founded 27 years ago. Running the Bath Half for Rainforest Concern will help us to protect even more threatened forest habitat as well as the countless species of plants and animals that depend on the forests for survival.
We are based in Bath and have a global network of conservationists working on projects in Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Chile, India and Romania. The charity owns protected rainforest reserves in Ecuador and Chile, secures legal land rights for indigenous people, provides alternative and sustainable income for local communities, instals camera traps and survey endangered wildlife such as spectacled bears, pumas and rare amphibians and recently funded emergency kits to prevent the spread of Coronavirus to indigenous communities in remote areas of Brazil and the Colombian Amazon.
Over 12 million hectares of tropical forests were lost last year, so your support will help us continue our vital work to save habitat and endangered species.
