Human rights mean nothing to the palm oil barons. PLEASE SIGN our petition and tell industry heavyweights Colgate-Palmolive, Kellogg's, Nestlé, Unilever and Procter & Gamble to get child labor out of their supply chain: https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1081/kellogg-s-nestle-unilever-no-to-child-labor-for-palm-oil?t=2883

The substance has quietly become one of the most indispensable substances on Earth, but its production has been connected to crime.

Please sign: Say NO to Nespresso – aluminum coffee pods are killing the rainforest!

https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1066/coffee-doesn-t-need-aluminum-pods?t=2852
More and more coffee drinkers swear by single-cup pods – a booming business for Nespresso, Keurig and others. Pods are tough on the planet, however: bauxite mines are eating into rainforests for the needed aluminum, most of which ends up in landfills after use. Tell the coffee companies to put an end to this needless destruction.

Does signing petitions really make a difference? You bet it does!

https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/achievements/7835/our-successes-thanks-to-your-support
It’s a question we often get: “Does your work actually make a difference? Can you really stop the people who are destroying nature and our forests?” The answer is a resounding YES – with your support, we – and our hard-working partners on the ground – are scoring wins for our planet.

Success: the EU Birds and Habitats Directives are safe! A wave of grassroots action across Europe prompted the EU to drop its plans to weaken these key nature conservation laws.

https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/achievements/7808/a-wave-of-protest-saves-eu-nature-conservation-laws
A groundswell of protest across the continent prompted the European Commission to abandon plans to weaken the Birds and Habitats Directives, decades-old cornerstones of European nature conservation.

Tons of illegal ivory are being laundered in Europe thanks to the EU’s ivory trade loopholes.

Tell the EU to kill the trade before the trade kills the last elephants!

https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1076/tell-the-eu-to-ban-ivory-trafficking-now?t=2825
The EU sees itself as a conservation leader, yet it has a blind spot for the ivory business. The trade in “antique” ivory remains legal in the EU – a convenient loophole to launder tons of freshly poached tusks and export them to Asia. Tell the EU to kill the trade before the trade kills the last elephants!

Anyone who owns ivory is guilty and disgusting.

PLEASE SIGN: Tell the EU to put nature before business interests!

The EU’s Birds and Habitats Directives have been the cornerstone of nature conservation in Europe for decades. But now, the European Commission is “fitness checking” them to make them more business-friendly. Tell the EU to get its priorities right and put conservation first!

https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1054/tell-the-eu-to-prevent-a-silent-spring?t=2780
Nature in Europe is on the ropes, with one third of all species currently threatened. Numerous birds and butterflies are on the verge of disappearing, yet the European Commission is about to sacrifice nature to business interests by “fitness checking” its bird and habitat directives. Tell the EU to put conservation first!

Please SIGN: The future of the Leuser Ecosystem on Sumatra — the last place on Earth where orangutans, tigers, elephants and rhinos still live side by side — hangs in the balance.

Tomorrow, Indonesian judges will decide on a zoning plan that would open much of Leuser to mining, logging and oil palm plantations. In January, inhabitants of Aceh province filed a lawsuit against the plan. Please support the Aceh activists and sign TODAY!
https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1040?t=2112
Nothing compares to the Leuser Ecosystem on Sumatra. It's the last place on Earth where orangutans, tigers, elephants and rhinos share a habitat. That may soon be history – a new land use plan has stripped Leuser of its protection, leaving it wide open for roads, plantations and mining. Tell the government of Aceh to protect Leuser now!

Some of the last Sumatran elephants roam the forest of Sepintun – a habitat that is being trashed for oil palm, pulp and rubber plantations. Conservationists have now discovered the remains of poached elephants there. Tell the authorities to give the elephants’ home the protection it deserves!

PLEASE SIGN: A massacre is in full swing: Mauritius has declared open season on flying foxes, and wants 10,000 dead by Christmas. Please speak out against the slaughter!

https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1023/stop-the-killing-save-the-mauritius-flying-fox?t=1355
Mauritius has once again declared open season on flying foxes. Orchard owners consider the giant fruit bats to be a pest, and the government has called for 10,000 to be killed by Christmas. The cull could lead to the extinction of the species. Please tell the Mauritian government to stop the killing NOW.

PLEASE SIGN: Makatea Atoll is a tiny green dot in the middle of the South Pacific and a treasure trove of biodiversity. Its fatal flaw: rich deposits of phosphate, a key ingredient in synthetic fertilizer.

Australian investors have Makatea in their sights, while local NGOs are struggling to keep the miners out. Please add your voice to the islanders’ petition!
https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1075/save-the-noah-s-ark-of-the-south-pacific?t=2769
Makatea Atoll in French Polynesia is a veritable treasure trove of nature in the middle of the South Pacific. That may soon be history, however – an Australian company wants to mine the tiny island for phosphate to produce synthetic fertilizer. Please stand with the Makatea islanders against this looming ecological disaster.

PLEASE SIGN: Tell Cameroon to resist U.S. government bullying and keep its rainforest safe from the palm oil industry!

https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/petitions/1074/keep-the-palm-oil-mafia-out-of-this-forest?t=2748
New York-based investors are eyeing Cameroon’s rainforests for industrial-scale oil palm plantations. U.S. diplomats strong-armed the Cameroonian government into pushing the project through against the will of the local people, who are fighting to keep the bulldozers at bay. Tell Cameroon to reject the project once and for all.

Story
Tagline
Fighting rainforest destruction since 1986. We organize petitions and raise funds in support of activist groups in rainforest countries.
Introduction
Rainforest Rescue (Rettet den Regenwald) was founded in 1986 in Germany. We have about 45,000 supporters. We organize protest actions and email protests against rainforest destruction.

Our main topics are:

* organizing protest actions and email protests against rainforest destruction by loggers, companies such as oil or mining companies and development projects
* supporting NGOs in South America e.g. Ecuador and Indonesia
