Esperanza Verde is a conservation project under construction in the Amazon basin of Peru, consisting of both wildlife rescue and rainforest protection.
Our aim is to work closely together with the local community, offering alternative sources of income, so that the forest can be managed in a sustainable way.
The projects now owns 140 hectares (approx 187 football fields) of rainforest, named ‘Selva Dormida’. With the help of the people of Bello Horizonte, the neighboring village, we hope to be able to protect a bigger area in the future.
Esperanza Verde, will be needing the support of volunteers. Construction of animal enclosures, reforestation, and animal caretaking are some of the things that will need to be done with the help of volunteers.
