Give Them a Hand

We are dedicated at La Reserva to supporting local peoples and the forests on their land. It is an unfortunate fact that many families are tempted to sell parcels covered with native trees to developers because they have no other way to generate income from forested land. The Lopez family is one example of these forces at work. The government program that offered them minimal income over a five year period has ended and they desperately need a means of providing for their family.

This project offers the opportunity to offset one’s own carbon footprint by supporting existing forest that is in danger of being sold for development (a minimum of 500 metric tons/year). It will allow the Lopez family to continue their off-the-grid life in the midst of that forest and it will protect the myriad of species that depend on this forest for their survival.
