African Rainforest Conservancy
The African Rainforest Conservancy (ARC) promotes the restoration of African rainforests — among the oldest and most biodiverse in the world — by funding indigenous grassroots conservation organizations. By providing new economic and educational opportunities to local men, women, and children, they empower these communities to preserve their natural heritage for all mankind.
