Become a protector of the AMAZON
The Yachana Footprint For Life program is creating an ecological corridor to link our 1,000 hectare (2,500 acre) reserve to a national park that is at a higher elevation, expanding the protected area, and allowing the migration of species through the area.
Give a one time donation to the Yachana Foundation. Maybe in your own name, or maybe to be made in honor of someone special in your life who loves the earth- perhaps at a birthday or anniversary, perhaps at death. It's a special and unique gift that keeps on giving.
