American Bird Conservancy (ABC) was created in 2004. It is a non-governmental organization that works in the conservation of wild birds and their habitats throughout the Americas. ABC seeks to prevent the extinction of the rarest birds, protect declining bird habitat, eliminate threats to common bird populations, find innovative solutions to conservation problems and build capacity in the bird conservation community.

Rainforest Trust was founded initially as the World Parks Endowment (World Parks Fund) in 1998, but changed its name to WLT-US since 2006, and later to the Rainforest Trust in 2012. Although its name has changed, its philosophy and areas of work have been maintained over time.

The fundamental mission of the organization is the conservation of land and resources in Latin America, with emphasis on the conservation of biodiversity and threatened habitats. The working philosophy of the Rainforest Trust is to establish agreements with local groups, and minimize the United States' presence in the delivery of resources and capacity building in the south. Rainforest Trust works throughout the hemisphere, but mainly in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.
