Welcome! Join us in supporting the Rainforest!

Celebrating Over 25 Years of Conservation Success!

 

What We Do

Rainforest conservation supports life.  Your support helps us with:

Land Purchase:  Wildlife cannot survive without necessary habitat and pathways for migration. We help restore the forest.

Land Protection:  Rainforest creatures are under continuous threat from poaching and habitat destruction.    This can be prevented.

Education:  Community outreach helps people understand that we all depend on the rainforest. Have us visit your group or school today.

Eco Travel:  Experience the forest and its breathtaking array of inhabitants first hand for a trip that will change your view of the world. Travel with us.

A Baby Three Toed Sloth: The Children’s Eternal Rainforest abounds with creatures of all kinds.

Unparalleled Biodiversity:

Did you know the Children’s Eternal Rainforest protects more biodiversity than most places on earth, including:

  • 154 species of amphibians and reptiles
  • 121 kinds of mammals
  • 450 bird species
  • 3,000 different kinds of plants including 800 species of trees and 500 types of orchids
  • Tens of thousands of insect species

Costa Rica boasts 5% of the world’s species diversity in an area that’s smaller than West Virginia!  We are committed to protecting these creatures and their habitat.

A One in a Million Chance:

The Children’s Eternal Rainforest boasts globally unparalleled biodiversity because a convergence of geological factors create weather and climatic conditions that don’t exist anywhere else on the planet, including:

  • Close proximity to both the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean
  • A volcanic land bridge
  • Rapidly changing, mountainous elevation
  • A location straddling the continental divide

As a result, there are places in the forest where a traveler can cross into a new life zone for about every 100 meters the elevation changes.  Read about some of the life zones in the Children’s Eternal Rainforest or the forest’s ecology.
