Forest     Guardians

What we do

Forest Guardians is an international organisation devoted to the

guardianship of forests and forest people. We connect traditional

forests groups and the international community through fundraising,

online courses, and advocacy. By drawing on indigenous and traditional knowledge from around the world, we aim to cultivate forest culture and values in an effort to reconnect people to plant and tree life.


In 2019, 11.9 million hectares of tropical forest burned down. A football pitch every six seconds for a whole year. The time to act is now. You too can become a forest guardian, and join forest communities standing up for the rights of trees. 

Our work promotes cultural and spiritual values grounded on indigenous and traditional wisdoms, as well as legal assistance, community building and advocacy for forest guardians.

Join one of our  online courses or donate to one of our guardianships.

Act now! You too can help us guard and protect endangered forests
