Rainforest Partnership is an initiative to protect and regenerate tropical rainforests, now and forever. It is achieved through community-based projects that enable durable and sustainable rainforest protection.

Why the rainforest?

Rainforests are vital to the survival of all humankind and are complex ecosystems that protect our planet. Sadly, they are threatened due to unplanned demographic development and industry growth.

Community Approach

Rainforest Partnership provides communities with alternatives to deforestation, keeping a constant eye on outcomes. Rainforest Partnership integrates its technical expertise with indigenous culture and knowledge in designing income-generating projects that sustain the rainforest and the people who live in them.

Slow Travel to Save the Rainforest

At AndesTransit, we want to introduce you to the rainforest up close and personal.

Flying over the rainforest tends to objectify and abstract it. Traveling by bus not only helps you appreciate the scale and fragility of the fauna and flora that make up the rainforest, but the people who live within it and have cared for it for generations. Slow travel viscerally immerses you into how the environment and human communities are struggling to keep our global treasure from disappearing.

Come see the rainforest, and become all the more its partner.

Our effort to enlist slow travelers is also a mission to enlist conscious and caring travelers; to give them experiences that meet the earth and the cultures that are woven into it. Our hope is you will join us as an advocate for achievable measures, like persuading ground transportation companies to transition away from fossil fuels to instead power their fleets with practical alternatives like biofuels and solar.

Every day, it becomes more important for people and nature to work together. This union will save the future of our planet. Rainforest Partnership is an organization that provides the foundation and resources to empower and respect both people and nature. We are partnering with AndesTransit to fund the conservation and restoration of tropical rainforests and all their communities.
