Why I am Doing This

The world doesn't need more roads and hotels or pasture land. We need more trees. Unfortuneately the government doesn't provide enough financial incentive for the people to keep the land in conservation. And money in the hands of the government is exactly that money in the hands of the government. So its being slashed and burned. The people make more money selling the wood , and putting the land into pasture to raise cattle. And rightly so, in their eyes. They need money . And who can blame them. Why protect the forest? There is no money in it.

These forests benefit the entire world but no one wants to pay for them. I am currently personally funding the salvation of some precious rainforests with the hope of taking more, as much as i can. We all have responsibility to protect our forest land. But its out of sight out of mind. Until things like Mexico happen and the whole world is in shock runs to help. We need the vision to see what will become before we destroy all our land. before it is too late

Our Story

Donations would go to pay our workers, buy more land and keep the land in conservation. I have no desire to have tourism. Nothing destroys a place faster than tourism. The land just needs to exist as it is. Home to the trees, plants and animals.
