CoolEarth came out top with us
The Peruvian Amazon is experiencing rapid deforestation. As you read, illegal loggers are devastating the rainforest resources of many tribal communities. Cool Earth’s project with the Ashaninka tribe at Cutivireni prevents loggers from entering the community’s forests and the neighbouring Ashaninka Communal Reserve which form a buffer zone for Otishi National Park. In collaboration with our local partners Ecotribal, the Ashaninka chiefs at Cutivireni have offered their land for sponsorship through Cool Earth, allowing them to keep their forests intact and continue to live sustainably from their own land.
This Cool Earth project protects endemic species and ecosystems of high biological value. Ashaninka forests abound in wildlife, including high numbers of macaws, toucans, many humming birds, spectacled bears, several monkey species, tapir, anteaters and big cats. The project area helps protect an international rainforest corridor protecting rare and diverse habitats ranging across Peru and Bolivia.
Therefore we are proud to say that we have made a donation and bought a couple of acres of the Ashaninka Rainforest and will continue to do so each year.
