The International Society of Tropical Foresters has opened a fundraising campaign at Paypal https://www.paypal.com/pools/c/8YeclaXV3J to strengthen ISTF to serve members and chapters better. The fundraiser closes on 4 November 2023.
ISTF is an information-sharing network promoting scientific knowledge and best practices for the sustainable, equitable conservation and management of the world’s tropical forests. We now have over 2300 members in 110 countries. Membership is free and open to all who are committed to the conservation and sustainable use of tropical forest resources. ISTF has been running entirely on volunteer labor and minimal funding. We want to keep membership free to be as inclusive as possible, especially for our members from tropical countries.
We need your help in order to serve members and chapters better, reach more people, and improve our flow of information on tropical forest resources. We want to do this by improving the website (https://tropicalforesters.org), including a members-only platform to help members connect to each other, improving virtual conferencing and the Newsletter, and translating resources to Spanish and French for our members in Latin America and Francophone Africa.
