Robin Tauck Joins Marriott's Efforts to Protect Amazon Rainforest

BETHESDA, Md., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Tauck Romano Innovative Philanthropy (TRIP) is joining Marriott International's ongoing effort to leverage sustainable tourism, conservation and training in Brazil's Amazon Rainforest. TRIP has committed $50,000 to support education and a new Sustainable Agriculture Learning Center within the Juma Reserve in the Brazilian state of Amazonas.

The Learning Center, a project of the Amazonas Sustainable Foundation in Manaus, is now providing local residents with access to a year-long sustainable rainforest permaculture training program that demonstrates how protection of the rainforest's resources can improve the communities' current and long term livelihood.

Travel industry veteran Robin Tauck (TRIP Foundation trustee and President R. Tauck & Partners) believes the Sustainable Agriculture Learning Center is a clear example of how new and innovative programs show promise and build sustainable, positive change. "I am personally proud to be an initial international travel partner joining Marriott and the state of Amazonas in supporting such innovative programs in Juma. The Amazon Rainforest is known as the lungs of the world, and we can all leverage Marriott's leadership via our large, responsible and caring industry," said Tauck.
