Project Report | Dec 30, 2022
Bidding Farewell to 2022!

By Robin Van Loon | Executive Director

Dear friends of Camino Verde,

We've made it once again to the end of a year. Is it just us, or did this one go by especially fast? And yet it was rich, full of so much – January or February feel like a decade ago.

Having passed the year's shortest day (or longest, like here in the Southern Hemisphere), and with the year's end quickly approaching, we are again residing in the spirit of gratitude. We are So Grateful to have the multifaceted, multi-continental, creative, talented, beautiful family that we have in all of You! – our supporters, our donors, our encouragers, our cheerleaders, and our bandleaders.

Thank you for making 2022 such an extraordinary year for regeneration in the Peruvian Amazon! You inspire us to do the work, and we hope it inspires you back.

This is becoming something of a tradition, our family Holidays Greetings card from Camino Verde. And the tradition goes like this: I invite you to read on about the amazing things you helped make possible this year. And I appeal to you one last time, if the spirit moves you, please consider making one last year's end contribution to the powerful, meaningful work you're about to read about (you can donate here). And to the many of you who have already donated, Thank You!

Thanks 2022! Thank You, friends. The road ahead in 2023 is looking bright. Thanks for believing us and keeping us going strong.

2022 By the Numbers:

  • 94,625 – Total trees planted 2022

  • 2,250 – Rosewood trees planted 2022

  • 33,215 – Total trees registered on our RealTrees Platform to date

  • 110 Families participating; from 7 Communities in 1 Native federation

  • Over 750 acres (300 hectares) of reforested areas under permanent management, registration and conservation.

How do I support CV?

What Else is New (in words):

  • GLF Semillero– CV was selected as one of the Global Landscapes Forum’s seed organizations in Latin America, or Semilleros. A cash prize is awarded with opportunities for publicity about CV’s activities with native species restoration and transparency technologies.

  • Amazonia Rising Conference – CV ED Robin Van Loon presented on a panel on buying Amazonian products at Amazon Investor Coalition's annual summit, alongside representatives of Pacha Soap and Lush Cosmetics.
  • MOU signed with ForestLab, Peruvian research company with experience in rosewood in vitro propagation for the production of seedlings and genetic cataloging of the species. In vitro rosewood experimentation is already underway with ally institution CITE Productivo.

  • Partnership formed with the Swiss NGO Wyss Foundation to further develop CV’s RealTrees technology into 2023.

Thanks again for all you help us do! We are stronger together, and grateful for this network of support.

All the best from Tambopata,

Robin Van Loon
Executive Director
