The Rainforest Information Centre Inc.

We are a a non-profit, volunteer organisation dedicated to the protection of the Earth's remaining rainforests and the indigenous people who depend on them.

The Rainforest Information Centre (RIC) was born out of  the successful struggle to save the sub-tropical rainforests of New South Wales, Australia 1979-1981 followed by our participation in the struggles to save the temperate rainforests of Tasmania in 1982 and the tropical rainforests of Far North Queensland in 1985-86. Since then we have been involved in campaigns and projects which protect rainforests and at the same time recognise the legitimate development aspirations of rainforest peoples .

Our activities include:

Projects in Ecuador and India

Small Grants Program supporting environmental justice worldwide

Deep ecology workshops and the dissemination of information on deep ecology

Campaigns on gold mining, forest campaigns, oil palm...

International rainforest roadshows
