What We Do

Protecting a natural resource and global treasure like the Children’s Eternal Rainforest requires a multi-pronged approach that includes buying, restoring and protecting land; educating the public about the importance of rainforests and their inhabitants; and providing opportunities through travel and other awareness raising events for people to experience the timeless beauty of this natural habitat for themselves.  In collaboration with our Costa Rican partner, the Monteverde Conservation League, the Friends of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest’s programs and initiatives work towards these goals.  Here is what we’re doing to protect this priceless resource.

The Keel-billed Toucan is one of more than 440 species of birds protected by the Children’s Eternal Rainforest.

Land Purchase

Wildlife cannot survive without necessary habitat and pathways for migration.  We help restore the forest.

Land Protection

Rainforest creatures are under continuous threat from poaching and habitat destruction.    This can be prevented.

Education

Community outreach helps people understand that we all depend on the rainforest.  Have us visit your group or school today and give an engaging, informative presentation that will get you excited about the rainforest.
