Fundacion del Bosque Tropical
A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
The Tropical Rainforest Foundation and Fundacion del Bosque Tropical are two Organizations joined together for the conservation of natural resources in Central America.

The most important projects are centered in the preservation of the Mayan Biosphere Reserve, which deal mainly with environmental education, mass-media, and projects of sustainable development, carbon sequestering and certification in areas of private administration, regarding tropical rainforests.

It is the largest and most important tropical rainforest to north America in the American Continent, and one the of the most important oxygen lungs of the entire world.

Our second field of action in Las Nubes Estate. This estate is a coffee plantation with the most spectacular intact rainforest that we manage and protect. It is found in Suchitepequez, in the Republic of Guatemala.

OUR MISSION
Acquiring primary forests to preserve them and consolidate ecological actions, thus generating models in areas of private administration.

Bringing forth jurisprudence relative to the inscription of conservation areas under private administration, reinforcing the National System of Protected Areas, and the inscription of ecological corridors.

Creating new alternatives and a profound conscience on people using mass-media, for a life-style of sustainable development, being these alternatives economic, social, technical and ecologically feasible.

Developing projects of renewable energy, and the reduction of logging for fuel. Creating new business alternatives for land owners in protected areas and for immigrants under the Climatic Change Structure.

Engaging efforts in educational programs, promoting seminars and workshops directed to children and adults of various sectors.
