The TFCG, which pioneered local forest management in Tanzania, works in 160 villages in 6 mountain ranges, has planted 15 million trees, trained 10,000 villagers in agro-forestry, assisted hundreds of self-help groups in micro-enterprises and protects some 2900 km2 of high-biodiversity rainforest. The president of the New York-based African Rainforest Conservancy, Carter is a former journalist who reported for Time in Africa, the author of two books and a magna cum laude graduate of Vanderbilt University.
