Founded in 1999, the Amazon Conservation Association (ACA) works to conserve the biological diversity of the Amazon. We work to protect biodiversity by studying ecosystems and developing innovative conservation tools to protect land in the region while supporting the livelihoods of local communities. We work by forging ties with governments, nonprofits and people who depend on the rainforests for their livelihood, with the goal of saving rare species and habitats and learning from the land.

The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) was founded in 1983 to restore the American chestnut tree to its native range within the woodlands of the eastern United States using a scientific research and breeding program developed by its founders. We harvested our first blight-resistant nuts in 2005, and the Foundation hopes to begin reforestation trials with blight-resistant American-type trees before the end of this decade, using sound ecological principles. We also provide educational opportunities to our nation's youth through our educational outreach programs, including the Charlie Chestnut Environmental Program and the Chestnut Tree Loaner Laboratory.

Today, the organization's primary campaigns are Tree-Planting for Environmental Restoration and Reversing the National Urban Tree Deficit, which encourage people to improve rural, suburban, and urban ecosystems by planting and caring for trees that provide important environmental and economic benefits including pure water, clean air, and wildlife habitat.
