In 1989, Sting and Trudie Styler founded the organizations jointly known as Rainforest Foundation. Since then the Foundation has been supporting indigenous peoples and traditional populations of the rainforest in their efforts to conserve their land and defend their rights. Since 2008, the importance of rainforest protection as a contribution to preventing climate change has received much international attention. Thanks to Glenn for the news.
