Introduction 

We are very excited to be building a new partnership based in the Brazilian Pantanal, the worlds largest wetland and the best location in the world for wildlife tourist to come observe jaguars in their natural environment..

Report 

This year our partners are starting off a new project located at a cattle ranch that is also a ecolodge. Their ranch/lodge is located only 10km from a large city with 40k population. Since 2017 they have been occasionally setting camera traps there and since then have identified 12 individuals using this land. The thing about this lodge is they are surrounded by ranchers who aren't involved with eco tourism, not necessarily jaguar friendly and are annually losing their livestock to jaguar and or puma. Our goal here is to show our presence, give talks and workshops, and build a program where neighboring ranches pledge to be jaguar friendly and stop killing jaguars. In turn we will have a conservation tax that will be uses to help offset these losses for those who aren't working directly with ecotourism

Thank you for your support

Dear Supporters,

In January 2011 we started this project with our team in Costa Rica with the aim to build a sustainable project that would be funded locally and sustainability. We know that conservation projects are long term and over the years our team have published countless papers that have included local, national and international partners to influence decision making to protect the Jaguars and the rainforest in Costa Rica. 

Over the past 11 years with you by our side we have invested over $33,000 from 641 donors around the world and this inclides you! You have be apart of something unique and special and today although sad for us it is a huge achievement that we hand this project over to a local charity that has a sustainable funding source and will continue the great research and more importantly will continue local outreach activities to engage the local community in the issues these amazing wild animals face on their doorstep.

 

So what is next?: Our team is ready to head over to our next location with a similar mission and I am excited to let you know before anyone else that this new project will be in Peru! We are very excited to kick off in Peru but our priority now is fundraising through this project so we can set up in Peru over the next few months. We hope you Join Us in the next part of this project adventure to protect and save more wildlife and more of the beautiful rainforest 

Thank You!

Dear Donors, Fundraisers and our amazing supporters! 

 

We have been truly amazed by the support of all our donors over the past few years helping us raise over $40,000 on and off GlobalGiving and every penny of this went to our project that worked with our local partners CJC. 

This year we are excited to announce that our project partner felt confident to take the lead and continue the project alone after the support we have offered them they have now built a sustainable future for their project within the local community. This is such a great success and we are so pleased to leave them continuing their impact. 

So what is next? Well all the funds have now been spent so our drive over the next few months is to push donations and fundraise as much as possible and we hope this is where you come in, we would love for you to continue to help us through donations as well as sharing our updates with friends and family so we can raise enough funds to kick start the next phase of our project. 

Once we have enough support we will be formalising our partnership with a number of local community influencers, researchers and the Costa Rican Ministry of Environment, Energy and Technology (MINET) who are heading up an amazing community outreach program that is engaging local communities and educating them on the wildlife on their doorstep and how they have an impact on their future. 

We will continue our research on Jaguars and other wildlife that is resident in the Costa Rican Jungle but we also hope that as our project develops we will be able to help bring a network of local authorities and community members together to fight for the samne goal.  

Our project just doesn't stop at research and awareness we also want to work with local community members to help improve infrastructure to begin the long road ahead to transition to renewable energy as this is very important within the conservation area across Costa Rica. 

We also will be introducing opportunities for our supporters to visit our project in the near future so if you want to get involved further then get in touch, as this project is relaunching we are also looking for a corporate partnership to help grow this project and if you feel you can help please get in touch with us or the GlobalGiving team! 

Thank you again and we are looking forward to the next chapter!

Dear Donors, Fundraisers and Supporters,

 

I's time to give yourself a pat on the back for making another milestone in our project in Costa Rica. At the end of May our research project has become fully sustainable that we been able to end our partnership but th work is still continuing. With your help this is another project that is self sustaining so thank you! 

With this in mind we are still facing a huge crisis in protecting our rainforest in Costa Rica and so we begin our next part of the journey where we will be running mulitple research projects alongside a local outreach program to help educate the wider community of the issues we are facing and how they can help prevent it dying out. We have an outreach team currently preparing and getting ready to hit he streets but we now are actively fundraising essential funds to help cover outreach educational materials and local event attendance costs to ensure we maximise our reach. 

 

The future is bright but we can't stop our efforts just yet/ 

Thanks for being apart of our mission.

Tyrone, Shayle, Chelsea and the whole Action Change Costa Rica Team!

Introduction 

Jaguars and Turtles are both threatened species for different reasons. Jaguars have been pushed into smaller areas due to human development. Turtles are poached for their meat and shells and suffer due to human interference. We find jaguars preying on nesting turtles in Costa Rica. We need to use research to create awareness locally and internationally and assess the impact on species and habitats through funding research and assisting anti-poaching patrols.

Report 

After 10 years of research, we better understand the critical nature of the habitat to turtles, jaguars and other species listed as endangered or critically vulnerable in the red list of IUCN. Using this research we can better educate the local community and engage them to support action to preserve these Species which will also generate income for the locals. Just $20 will purchase a 32gig storage card which is critical for storing footage captured on our camera traps!

Thank you for your suppor
