In 1981, the Rainforest Information Centre was the first organisation in the world to put the world's rainforests on the agenda.

In 1984, our World Rainforest Report was the first journal dedicated to rainforest protection. The paper version of WRR was produced from then until the late '90's when it was replaced by the electronic version. Today, the WRR is no longer produced by the Rainforest Information Centre but back issues are available at http://www.rainforestinfo.org.au/ric/wrrback.htm

In the meantime, our work has spawned a variety of organisations and publications. In order to concentrate on our project work, we now direct enquiries for news and information to:

* the World Rainforest Movement http://www.wrm.org.uy/ whose excellent Bulletin is available in French, Spanish and Portuguese as well as English

*Rainforest Action Network, the premier rainforest organisation in the world to-day was initiated by the Rainforest Information Centre/Earth First! US roadshow in 1984 http://www.ran.org/

*Forest Archives Portal http://forests.org/ offers a vast selection of articles on forests worldwide, including a massive Forest Conservation Links collection.

* Take Action at: http://www.rainforestportal.org/

*Other sources of rainforest information may be found on our links page and the links pages of the above organisations.
