- EVERY DAY, nearly 200 hectares (495 acres) of Nicaraguan rainforest are being destroyed, along with the plants, animals, and insects that depend on its vital ecosystems.
- 285,000 hectares (704,000 acres) of tropical rainforest were devastated by Hurricane Felix in 2007.
- At the present rate, the Nicaraguan rainforest will become the largest desert area in Central America by 2050.
- Nicaragua (click link for map) is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere (next to Haiti). Environmental issues and the destruction of the rainforest are inconsequential to the indigenous communities when facing poverty.
- We must reverse the impact of many years of devastation and neglect.
- We have a comprehensive plan to accomplish this goal, but we also need your help and support.
- Our vision is to replant the rainforest hectare by hectare, whilst providing long term job and business opportunities for the Indigenous communities - its future guardians.
- We will build a unique long term solution for preserving the rainforest in Nicaragua.
- To be successful, we need to create a model of sustainability.
- Join us as we begin to forge a new future for the Nicaraguan rainforest and the Indigenous population that relies upon it.
