Celebrating Over 25 Years of Conservation Success!
In 1987 Swedish school children started a worldwide effort to purchase and protect rainforest in the Monteverde region of Costa Rica, one of the planet’s most bio diverse habitats. Since then, children and adults from 44 nations have joined that effort. Today, the 55,000 acre Children’s Eternal Rainforest is a testament to the change that can be accomplished by individual direct action. Your support helps to protect the air we breathe, the water we use and the amazing abundance of life on which we depend. Partner with us today!
