This last year we have lost many trees due to heavy rains and are working on a few new Monkey bridges to help them get from the primary to the secondary rainforest and to access the springs. Donate to this program with the tab below.
We also have a active reforestation program with multiple aspects. You can sponsor a square yard of rainforest for 100 US Dollars per year. This helps us pay for routine patrolling of the area for poachers of birds, animals and plants as well as night patrols to keep hunters away from endangered jaguars, tapirs and agouti that all live in the rainforest on our land and the adjacent National Park. Sponsor your square yard of environmental heritage by donating with the tab below.
You can also sponsor the planting of native trees to expand the bridge forest from the primary to the secondary growth forest for a donation of 25 US Dollars per tree with the tab below.
We also offer a commemorative tree planting service, with a placard announcing your message and our gratitude placed at each tree you sponsor in our expanding botanical learning garden for a donation of 50 US Dollars per tree.
Thank you for helping to save the Rainforest, the lungs of our planet Earth.
