Current projects we are funding
El Pantanoso Reserve – Argentina
In Argentina, the Yungas occupies a narrow fringe along the Andean eastern slopes in the provinces of Salta, Jujuy, Tucuman and Catamarca. There is an altitudinal diversity supporting a wide diversity of flora and fauna including Jaguar, Puma, Jaguarundi, Margay, Ocelot, Pampas Cats and tapirs.
Naturalezay Cultura Ecuador (NCEcuador)
Founded in 1997 to conserve endangered habitats, strengthen local capacity and help communities preserve their way of life. NCEcuador’s projects are in the south of the country and conserve dry coastal forest, rich cloud forests of the Andean mountains and rainforests of the Amazon basin.
Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda (GESG) – Mexico
Protecting threatened habitats in the mountainous terrain of the Sierra Gorda Reserve located in Central Mexico. The Sierra Gorda is the most ecologically diverse area in the country. This is even more impressive considering that Mexico is one of the most mega-diverse countries in the world.
Our funding progress
In 2017 we were thrilled by funding the protection of 24,000 square meters of threatened habitats in Argentina, Ecuador and Mexico. This was all made possible by our clients booking their Australian tours and experiences through Tree Hugger Travel. Ecuador was the most popular choice when we asked our clients which project they would like Tree Hugger Travel to fund on their behalf.
