RIC logoThe Rainforest Information Centre (RIC) is a non-profit, volunteer organisation dedicated to the protection of the Earth's remaining rainforests and the Indigenous people who depend on them. Born out of  the successful struggle to save the sub-tropical rainforests of New South Wales, Australia from 1979-1981, it was followed by struggles to save the temperate rainforests of Tasmania in 1982, and the tropical rainforests of Far North Queensland in 1985-86. Since then they have been involved in campaigns and projects which protect rainforests and recognise the legitimate development aspirations of rainforest peoples.

Their activities include projects in Ecuador and India, deep ecology workshops and the dissemination of information on deep ecology, and forest campaigns.

The Melbourne Rainforest Action Group is indebted to the Rainforest Information Centre and founder John Seed for ongoing information and support.
