Turtle Rescue

Giant River Turtle Rescue

Every year we operate a turtle rescue expedition in the Rio Bita river basin, with special attention to Podocnemis unifilis and Podocnemis expansa, both of which are listed in the IUCN's Red List of endangered species. Every donation is welcome, especially if you commit to recurring monthly donations, which allow us to better budget our turtle rescue efforts. Simply select how many multiples of $10 USD you wish to help us with by clicking on the single or recurring donation Paypal links to the left, or contact us to make other arrangements. A giant turtle thank you!



Sassafras

Native and Endangered Tree Planting

While trees don't always come to mind when thinking of endangered species, many rain forest trees are under pressure from deforestation, illegal logging, an almost complete lack of replanting and large gaps in our knowledge of those species. Unfortunately, a loss of tree species invariably means a loss of their more cuddly inhabitants, who frequently depend on those habitats for their survival. Every $15.00 USD donation allows us to plant and maintain 3 native trees for up to 3 years. Simply select how many multiples of $15.00 USD you wish us to plant trees with by clicking on the single or recurring donation Paypal links to the left, or contact us to make other arrangements. A leafy thank you!




Students

Support Student Interns

Our non-profit NGO has supported students from all over the world who need to complete an internship or thesis field work as part of their ecology, forestry, biology or natural science studies (such as zoology, ornithology, entomology, botany and many other disciplines), by providing accommodations, food and local transport to the students while they are doing their internship at La Pedregoza. It is very important to us to develop and support the next generation of environmental leaders. Your $25 USD donation can make a huge difference in the life of a young person. Simply select how many multiples of $25 USD you wish us to support students with by clicking on the single or recurring donation Paypal links to the left, or contact us to make other arrangements. Thank you so much!





Sacred seeds

Our Sacred Seeds Botanical Garden

Knowledge of medicinal and alimentary trees is being lost. Our non-profit NGO has established a Sacred Seeds Botanical Garden dedicated to the preservation of ethno-botanical knowledge and to the conservation of medicinal and alimentary trees of the Orinoco River basin. This world heritage garden requires your active support. A $20 USD donation helps us to propagate medicinal and alimentary tree species, to record ethno-botanical knowledge and to plant those trees with volunteer assistance in this botanical garden. You can select with how many multiples of $20 USD you wish to support this world heritage effort, by clicking on the single or recurring donation Paypal links to the left, or contact us to make other arrangements. NatureĀ“s drug store thanks you!
