The Tropical Forestry Initiative
The Tropical Forestry Initiative (TFI) is a non-profit organization founded by a small group of professors and environmentalists. On our 350-acre preserve in Costa Rica, we study the effects of prior deforestation and various strategies for reforestation as well as the ethical use of tropical forest products. TFI also serves as an education site. Learn more about our student abroad opportunities in our Study Abroad tab.
