Indigenous peoples are the best stewards of the world’s rainforests and Rainforest Action Network believes frontline communities organizing against the extraction and burning of dirty fossil fuels deserve the strongest support we can offer. Over the past two decades, RAN's Protect-An-Acre (PAA) program has distributed over one million dollars in small grants to traditionally under-funded organizations and communities in forest regions across the globe.
Take a look at the many inspiring Protect-An-Acre projects we've supported over the years on our new (very cool) interactive map.
Indigenous and frontline communities suffer disproportionate impacts to health, livelihood and culture from industrial mega-projects, as well as the resulting effects of global climate change.

The Protect-an-Acre program is an integral part of our commitment to preserve the world’s forests and halt climate destabilization while also supporting the livelihoods and right to self-determination of forest peoples worldwide.
Thank you for supporting RAN’s ongoing efforts to stop deforestation and protect human rights.
