Restore Nature Foundation

Restore Nature Foundation (RNF) restores forest ecosystems in Southern Portugal: one of the driest, most fire risky and degraded areas of Europe. Here, on the frontline, we are dedicated to use the power of nature to turn things around.

We empower local projects and land regenerators to realize regional impact. Together we work on regenerative solutions to combat desertification and restore nature.

Forests ecosystems are vital for
Preserving water and biodiversity

Creating fertile soil 
Storing massive amounts of CO2
Creating the air we breath and many other products
Connecting us to our natural environment

Europe was once covered by forests.
And together we can help them return.

We realize strategic natural interventions


  1. More then just planting trees:

    - Biodiversity:
    Planting diverse native species to rebuild the natural support network where flora and fauna collaborate. 
    - Water management:
    Catching water in the landscape is crucial to restore the ecosystem. A scarce resource in Southern Europe. 
    - Improve soil conditions:
    Protecting and feeding the soil with natural biomass and compost is crucial for the development of trees and plants.

We collaborate
with experts


 Skilled professionals 

- Local ecological knowledge:
Understanding the crucial components of the native forests is the foundation for rebuilding ecosystems.
- Years of experience:
Experience with project management, nature interventions & communication to make our efforts impactful.
- Long term vision:
For our aim of having long-term and in-depth impact we develop a holistic plan  to restore natural ecosystems for now and for generations to come.

We aim for impact in the whole region



Collaboration is key

- Regional support network:
We created an exchange network (link): members work in each other's land, share knowledge tools and fun.
- Events to empower people:
Everybody is welcome to learn: join our interventions, workshops, tours network, or join forces in other ways.
- Sharing & open access:
Connect with our story, landscape and actions through satellite and drone maps or visit our social media channels.

Nature education

Even more important then regenerating land is teaching others how to do so. We facilitate nature education workshops, events, classes for kids and adults.
