Challenge

Located in the department of Ahuachapan, El Imposible contains a highly threatened dry tropical forest that forms part of the coastal mountain range Apaneca-Ilmatepec. The 9,000 acre forest ranges from 900 ft to 4300 ft above sea level and is home to more than 500 species of birds as well as the country's most crystalline water.

Solution

Besides buying key habitat to add to the rainforest, SalvaNATURA is working with local residents to promote shade-grown coffee plantations as an alternative to hunting and fishing.

Long-Term Impact

To save El Salvador's last expanse of rainforest.
