All this good work positions us well for the future, and we're looking for your help to keep our programs going strong through the end of 2013. It's our goal this month to raise the remaining $7,711 in our Planting 1000 trees, Saving 100 acres project. With your support, we'll be able to complete our fundraising through GlobalGiving with a bang (helping to keep Camino Verde ranked a Superstar organization on GG!).
I deeply appreciate any contribution you’re able to make. (You can donate at http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/planting-1000-trees-saving-100-acres/ )
Here are just a few of the program improvements you've helped us accomplish in 2012 and 2013:
-Completed our 2500 seedling tree nursery, with a well and water tower to keep our little friends growing strong.
-With help from two grants, purchased production-scale essential oil distillation equipment to create aromatic essential oils from endangered jungle hardwoods like rosewood and many others. We are targeting this project to be an income producer within a year.
-Created a network of monitoring trails to ensure no poachers or loggers enter the thousand acre preserve we protect. (And now we’ve installed a motion sensor camera to take images of some of the amazing fauna!)
Thanks so much for your support of Camino Verde, now and always. Together, we’re taking great strides to keep the Amazon green.
