The Amazon Rainforest
– A Precious Treasure of Our Planet Earth

Rainforest Foundation Japan (RFJ) strives to protect the Amazon rainforest and support the Indigenous people who reside there.
We develop and manage projects that aid the local people and each year visit the area and share their daily lives with them.

About Us

カヤポ民族大長老 ラオーニ・メトゥティレ

Listen to the voices of the forest,
 the river, the sky and the earth.

There are spirits in everything and they teach us many things.

If the forests disappear, the Indio will die.

And do not forget, you too will perish.
