Our projects have earned special certifications for protecting wildlife. Most, if not all, protect critically endangered species, like the bonobo monkey, forest elephant, orangutan, and lemur, plus others that are threatened or vulnerable. Some projects host glorious birds, like macaws, which have declined across South America due to forest loss. And others host rare fish, insects, and butterflies.
All together, the wildlife in our projects is a who’s who of the animal kingdom: giant river otters, jaguars, birds of paradise, rhinos, cheetahs, lions, leopards, spectacled bears, gibbons, pangolins. There’s even an exceedingly rare bat. (See the biodiversity page for why this is important!)
