Save Unprotected Land Bordering Costa Rica's Rainforest.
The 56,000 acres comprising the Children's Eternal Rainforest is home to incredible biodiversity and provides vital habitat for threatened mammals of the region such as mountain lions, ocelots, Baird’s tapirs, three-wattled bellbirds and resplendent quetzals. The CER also protects five major watersheds that are crucial to downstream communities, farms, and hydroelectric projects.
Sadly, many areas neighboring the CER are poorly protected and heavily deforested. The situation is critical on the Pacific slope, where forests are threatened by cattle ranching. Outside of protected areas, this type of forest is in danger of disappearing altogether, and the CER is becoming ever more isolated from other forests.
GreaterGood.org partners with The Children’s Eternal Rainforest to preserve and rehabilitate the forest on the Pacific Slope and save the rich biodiversity it holds. With 30 years of experience in reforestation, The CER will execute a selective reforestation plan in order to help speed along natural forest regeneration. That land will also be added to CER’s routine monitoring to ensure forest and wildlife protection via patrols and camera traps to track mammal populations.
With your help we can save more of Costa Rica's Rainforest. Just $5.50 will protect 100 square feet of rainforest.
The Children’s Eternal Rainforest is Costa Rica's largest private reserve, bought and protected thanks to fundraising by children around the world. The campaign was sparked by Swedish children in 1987 and quickly gained support from schools, individuals and organizations in 44 countries. The CER is owned by the Monteverde Conservation League, a Costa Rican nonprofit founded in 1986 with the mission to preserve, conserve and rehabilitate natural ecosystems and biodiversity.
