Rainforest Rescue Coalition Inc. (RRC)

Hi, my name is Adam Bauer-Goulden. I just started a non profit organization called Rainforest Rescue Coalition Inc. (RRC). We are going to be hosting a cross country bike ride next summer to raise money to conserve rainforest land. Our goal is to raise around 64,000$, or enough to purchase one square mile of land. We are extremely interested in conserving land in the Amazon, and in Indonesia. Since it will be difficult to purchase land directly, we are planning on simply giving the money to already existing wildlife reserves and/or national parks in order for them to expand their land holdings. I would be extremely appreciative if you could evaluate this idea, and possibly provide us with a list of wildlife reserves and parks who would be willing to participate in this program. Thank you so much!

Sincerely,

Adam Bauer-Goulden (RRC)

  • Thank you so much for getting back to me Cheryl. I really appreciate the links and contact info. I'm currently talking with OFI and I'm thinking about starting off with raising some money to save the Rawa Kuno Legacy Forest in Borneo. Once our organization is completely up and running, I will definitely get in contact with you in order to pursue some other projects! Thanks again,
