There’s an incredible place in Colombia where you can find snow-capped mountains, prehistoric rainforests, and crystal clear rivers that run right into the Caribbean Sea! And this week we can help buy and protect it...forever.
The Indigenous communities of Sierra Nevada de Santa Maria have lived on this land for centuries, but it’s now under critical threat from mining, tourism, and urbanization.
Our partner, Rainforest Trust, is working hand-in-hand with them to have their Indigenous-owned land added to a National Park, giving it the highest protection possible under Colombian law. But to do it the government says they also need to buy more than a thousand acres of adjoining forest -- and for that, they need our help!
Last year we helped buy and protect a critical ecosystem in Indonesia…now we can do it in Colombia.
If 5000 of us chip in the cost of a cup of coffee in the next 24 hours, Rainforest Trust has donors offering a 2x match on your donation! They could secure the land quickly and get started on their work protecting the forest. Can you help save this unique piece of our planet?
Every extra penny we raise will be used to defend wild places like this from corporations bent on their destruction.
