Grant Associates, international landscape architecture practice, has pledged its support to Rainforest Concern by becoming a corporate partner of the Bath-based charity, as the practice continues to commit to its promise to ‘Act Global & Act Local’, supporting environmental and social change for the better.
Rainforest Concern has helped to protect over five million acres of rainforest since it was founded 28 years ago, with a wide range of successful conservation projects in Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, India and Romania. The charity’s work includes creating hatcheries for endangered leatherback turtles in Costa Rica, protecting rare spectacled bears and eagles in Ecuador and empowering rural women to re-forest the Western Ghats in India.
Funded entirely by grants, donations, sponsorship schemes and annual membership programmes, the charity recently launched Corporate Partnership opportunities to selected businesses, with Grant Associates becoming one of the first to pledge its support.
The practice, globally-recognised for its environmentally-driven work such as the iconic Supertrees and Gardens by the Bay in Singapore and the Tower of London Superbloom project, will be directly supporting Rainforest Concern to deliver on its ambitious future goals, including the upcoming launch of a forest twinning project that will encourage UK landowners to twin the acreage of their land with the purchase and protection of an equivalent area of rainforest in the Tropical Andes – the most biodiverse region on the planet.
