Sanctuary helps Suriname's sloths back to jungle
Green Heritage Fund Suriname (2005) rescues sloths and anteaters from urban areas in Paramaribo, Suriname in tropical South America. Professional care in natural surroundings with quarantine and treatment room will minimize trauma caused by contact with humans, reducing rehabilitation time and thus improving survival chances for the sloths and anteaters. This professional shelter will also serve as an educational center to teach visitors about consequences of habitat loss.
Sloth Sanctuary Suriname sequel: the whole story!
Green Heritage Fund Suriname (2005) builds a Xenarthra Center in Suriname to rehabilitate rescued sloths and anteaters, and to educate about the negative consequences of coastal swamp forest and mangrove forest destruction for animals AND humans. Previous campaigns provided us with funds for the initial stages of our construction plans, in all $40,000. Now we have found a suitable piece of land and are ready to get started, so please help us realize the construction of the complete center!
Help keep Belize Bird Rescue up and running
Funds from this project will feed the 170 former-captive parrots in our long-term release programme, rehabilitate the 250+ birds we receive annually, and help with running costs. As the only avian rescue and rehabilitation centre in Belize, our facility provides the mechanism for the Belizean Government's Forest Department to effectively enforce the wildlife laws that govern the illegal pet trade, and rehabilitates for release any orphaned, injured or sick birds.
Prosthetic Limbs for 50 Poor Bolivian Amputees
In Bolivia, it is exceedingly difficult for any low-income amputee to get a prosthetic limb due to lack of availability and funds. Our project's goal is to ensure that 50 low-income Bolivian amputees will walk again with a durable and functional prosthetic leg. The ability to walk again will allow these amputees to regain their sense of dignity, allow them to find employment, and contribute to their families and communities.
Clean Cook-Stoves for Rural Bolivian Schools
THINK GLOBAL, GO LOCAL -- CEDESOL will provide 11 schools in the impoverished Toro Toro municipality with clean biomass cook-stoves, working closely with 2,500 students, teachers and parents to equip them with stove training and environmental education that will empower women and children, promote students' educational access, prevent indoor smoke inhalation, and lower global carbon output.
