The Rainforest Foundation Fund was created in 1999 after 10 years of working as the Rainforest Foundation International, which was founded by Sting and Trudie Styler. It was formed to promote worldwide awareness of the need to conserve the tropical forests, to support the indigenous peoples in their efforts to conserve their land and develop their sustainable methods of resource management. In addition, the group aims to protect those inhabitants against any violation of their rights which are universally recognized in International law.
