In Latin America, coffee has traditionally been grown under the canopy of the rain forest, and a majority of the remaining regional rain forest is on coffee farms. Our current campaign goals are focused on raising awareness among coffee consumers, retailers, growers and distributors of the effect of sun-grown coffee on the songbirds and the rain forest on which they depend for essential habitat.
