In return, you receive a certificate and, depending on the amount of acres sponsored, books, T-shirts, posters and videos of the rainforest. For a fresh approach to human and physical geography, teachers are welcome to draw on the charity's expertise. Information can be provided on a range of successful conservation projects being run in Ecuador, Costa Rica and Sri Lanka, such as sugar cane production and eco-tourism. Older students may visit Rainforest Concern's research station which is based at the Maquipucuna Cloud Forest Reserve in Ecuador.
