Education to Rescue our Natural Heritage
 
One of Latin America's most bio-diverse regions and a vital sanctuary for endangered animals, the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve needs ongoing protection. But in an area rich in natural resources yet inhabited by impoverished communities, this remains an ongoing struggle. We're investing in the children of the Sierra Gorda, building understanding and respect for nature, and giving them the tools and resources they need to continue to protect their natural heritage well into the future. project reportread updates from the field
Protecting Wild Cat Habitat
 
The Sierra Gorda Alliance is working with local communities to protect cloud forests, home to thousands of animal species, which have dwindled to just 2% of their original coverage. These forests are the natural habitat of some of Mexico's most threatened species, including the magnificent Margay. By working with local communities to protect - not plunder - these natural resources we can continue to protect vital habitats. project reportread updates from the field
Revitalize Rural Entrepreneurship
 
Women entrepreneurs in the extreme poverty conditions of rural Mexico need seed capital to bridge the gap between current local capacity and the requirements of quality tourism. Cuatro Palos Ecolodge is the first of 15 roadside restaurants and 15 ecolodges seeking help to improve business and livelihoods. Help them build a small lodge with natural materials in a strategic tourist destination they own and operate in the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve. project reportread updates from the field
