Set an example for climate and species protection
The ProtectionForest “Los Monos” lies at the heart of Panama. It is a lively and species-rich rainforest in the Chiriquí province. The ProtectionForest is not only home to capuchin monkeys, mangrove trees and numerous parrot species, it is also our most important climate protector.
Together with us and for only 5 euros you can protect 5 square metres of this precious forest for half a century. It is also a perfect gift which makes it possible to preserve the environment and to protect the climate for future generations.
The ProtectionForest covers an area of about one hundred hectares, which equals 140 football fields. One hectare of this rainforest binds some 188,600 kilograms of CO2; the same amount one German citizen produces in 20 years, on average.
See for yourself how much our ProtectionForest contributes to the protection of people and the climate:
Numerous rare species …
… live in our forest, which was classified as a “high conservation value forest” in reports on biodiversity and which is also home to many endangered species. The forest is filled with numerous rare reptile, amphibian and bird species as well as capuchin monkeys, sloths and ocelots. It is no surprise the ProtectionForest is called “Los Monos”: the name literally translates to “the monkeys”.
Water and soil …
… cannot properly thrive without forests. Not only do forests contribute to climate protection, the strong rooting of the forest soil also prevents erosion and benefits the water balance and ground water.
People and forests …
… are brought together at our nature trail. In 2010, we built this educational nature trail together with local pupils. Small wooden bridges cross clear streams, passing lianas and huge primeval trees. Different signs tell interesting facts about native species and forest ecology.
