We at Rainforest Reliance Non-Profit Organization strive to incorporate a long term sustainability strategy that focuses on not just tree planting and land restoration but takes into account all aspects of biodiversity, conservation and preservation, whilst at the same time tackling ALL 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Although we are primarily focused on climate change encompassing regenerative landscape restoration via planting trees, our secondary focus is on maintaining a balance between biodiversity and man whilst protecting both from extinction.
As a young organization with over ten-years’ operating in the Mesoamerican Biological corridor and working with local and indigenous people. Correcting the mistakes of past generations by designing and implementing new innovative practical sustainable solutions that have proven to work, we have successfully demonstrated that we are more than capable and up to the task based on our proven track record and continued growth.
We are extremely proud and fortunate to be bestowed with such a valuable task protecting the second largest rainforest in the Western Hemisphere, after the Amazon.
Our organization/s and their directors are legally under direct mandate from the local independent governing bodies of the reserve, nominated to represent the people and their interests in front on the United Nations.
Together with being independently exclusively contracted specifically to focus on combating climate change, food security and social economic interests.
Restoring destroyed terrain in an effort to protect and preserve both the local people and their habitat that they share with nature, by restoring the balance between nature and man to ensure the survival of both.
As with any epidemic, deforestation is a disease that is spreading at a rapid growth rate, we try to explain and demonstrate to the best of our ability that what we do is more complicated than just planting a tree.
What we do involves multiple conflicting issues, one conflicting issue is we are against land appropriation and hence we partner with hundreds and thousands of local poverty stricken land owners by way of empowerment.
Many poor families facing starvation make the decision to evacuate the reserve and move to the city in hopes of a better life where they can feed their children.
This choice and practice means that in most cases our local indigenous families sell their land to outsiders, usually for agricultural use or cattle ranching leading to more destruction and deforestation.
It is with a sad heart but a necessary action to understand the local peoples plight, for this reason we offer to persuade those families adamant in departing and or selling of land to rather sell to our land conservation and preservation trust prior to selling to outsiders so we can protect and preserve what is left of our rainforests.
To assist us and help us prevent further degradation of our natural resources we urge the public to please support our “Land Preservation & Conservation Trust Initiative”
Funds raised will go towards the purchase of land and the restoration by way of planting endangered tropical tree species, together with ensuring the continued maintenance and protection of that land and its biodiversity for generations to come.
It is for these reasons we offer multiple options of inclusion to both our people and the public in tackling all aspects relating to ensuring we preserve and maintain our planet to the best of our ability going forward.
We aim to set up our own Park Ranger Station(s) together with an endangered species animal rescue facility and employ our own team of Park Rangers to monitor and protect the biodiversity within the borders of our 4 Reserves. They too will educate the local populations of the importance of maintaining a healthy ecosystem and working together with nature.
The 4 reserves (Bosawas, Patuca, Tawahaka & Rio Plantano) are declared protected sites under UNESCO.
Within the Biosphere live an estimated 200,000 insect species, it is a rich landscape with 21 different ecosystem types and is home to 13% of known species worldwide.
Currently there are threats to the conservation of the reserve which include illegal hunting, logging and clearing of land to graze cattle.
In 2011, UNESCO placed the reserve on the “World Heritage in Danger List”.
Here is your chance to participate in this rare and special occasion by way of joining our initiatives and joining forces with our local and indigenous communities by leading the world forward in an ecologically inclusive path to a cleaner, greener, sustainable future.
