2001/2 EAZARainforest Campaign

For the Rainforest Campaign 2001/2, the campaign raised money for the Golden Lion Tamarin Translocation Project and worked with Brazilian Government Institute for Environmental and Natural Renewable Resources (IBAMA) to establish an endowment fund for long term support for Atlantic Rainforest conservation. 
Funds were raised through the Lion Tamarins of Brazil Fund (LTBF). In order to centralise funds that were being raised by holders of lion tamarins to assist conservation programmes for the four lion tamarind species in situ, the International Committees for each species set up this centralised fund.
