If we are serious about forest
conservation, we must provide
education, employment and
viable alternative land-uses
for non-renewable resource.

  • Rimba Raya provides alternative income streams through capacity building, investments in micro-finance, programs that provide basic necessities and access to a conservation model that does not put the developing world’s need for economic growth at odds with our collective desire to protect a fragile ecosystem.

  • Our initiatives meet all 17 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which strive to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.

Rimba Raya is showing the world it is possible to protect forests, their indigenous wildlife AND improve the livelihoods of local communities at the same time.
