What Makes Us Rare

Rare is the global leader in social change for the environment. We have helped thousands of people across hundreds of communities in over 60 countries shift their behaviors and practices to protect the nature that sustains their lives, livelihoods, and communities.

Change is what we do. That’s what makes us Rare.
