Welcome

Message

Dear friends:

While searching in nature, we always find an unbreakable bond that unites us with each other and with nature itself, especially in times of deep divisions and global problems.

In this spirit of unity, we thank each of you who have become part of our community to preserve the ecosystems and cultural legacy in Puerto Rico. Without you, none of our efforts would be possible. We are grateful for your support, especially during times of adversity.

Last April, during Earth Week, we held Puerto Rico Conserva, a discussion on land conservation in Puerto Rico. This event gave us a unique opportunity to share ideas and launch Mapa-33, a digital tool we have been developing for years. Below we will share information and videos of the talks. 

The New York Times will also be holding its own discussions in London called Climate Forward.

For three days, experts will discuss the United Nations Climate Change Conference of 2021 to determine whether the promises made have been fulfilled since then. This event will undoubtedly give the international community a lot to talk about. 

We are excited to share with you the news that we are relaunching our AMIGOS program. From now on, AMIGOS will be a philanthropic program to support Para la Naturaleza’s conservation, community resilience, cultural wellness, and ecological restoration efforts. Thank you again for being a part of Para la Naturaleza. 

Cordially yours,

Fernando Lloveras San Miguel

President

We not only want to share these developments with you but also highlight their importance as part of Para la Naturaleza’s mission.

AMIGOS:
A new
philanthropic
community

AMIGOS enters
a new phase

What was known as a member benefit program for many years has now become a monthly donation program to support the growing variety of projects and programs that shape Para la Naturaleza’s work.

Through this new philanthropic community, donors can make monthly contributions to conservation efforts in Puerto Rico with donations of $5 per month or more.

This is an excellent opportunity for people who live far away from us to be part of our conservation efforts by giving their monthly support. We invite you to be part of a mission that is bigger than all of us, a mission whose impact will last forever.

Resiliency centers
shine during the
power outage

The islands of Puerto Rico suffered a general power outage on April 6 that left all citizens without electrical service.

However, 33 communities around the Puerto Rican archipelago received support for their basic needs because the resilient community centers were up and running.

We are grateful to all the collaborators and donors, especially PRXPR who supported the project from its inception, for making this initiative possible. We hope that more communities will be inspired and new resilient community centers will emerge in the future.

Para la Naturaleza inaugurates
new visitor center in El Yunque

Many thanks to everyone who joined us on April 2, during a unique event on the grounds of the rainforest where we shared with our allies all the news about our partnership with El Yunque National Forest and the new visitor center at Palo Colorado Station.

The center is near the Caimitillo trailhead and will serve as a new space for community interaction and outreach. In addition, the center will also offer educational and field trip items.

As part of the coverage of the official launch of the center, El Nuevo Día and Notiséis 360 PR published video reports.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at El Yunque. Our team captured some moments during the afternoon. Check them out in the photo gallery.

Puerto Rico Conserva:
A community map for 33

Last April during Earth Day, Para la Naturaleza held the summit, Puerto Rico Conserva.

Issues related to land conservaction were discussed along with the launch of the Mapa-33 tool, a digital platform for citizen participation dedicated to promoting the conservation of the islands of Puerto Rico. 

The goal is to protect 33% of Puerto Rico’s land by 2033. On this platform, users can propose lands that are important for their community, while supporting and sharing conservation proposals.

Community
resilience efforts

In May 2022, Para la Naturaleza was selected as one of 20 entities to receive funding under the Puerto Rico Department of Housing’s Comprehensive Community Resilience Planning Program. These recovery funds under the Community Development Block Grant — Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grant package will be used to carry out planning activities leading to the completion of Community Resilience Plans in two communities in southern Puerto Rico: La Parguera and Playa de Ponce.

Both communities voluntarily agreed to work with our organization in the application and future implementation of this project; our Southern Region and the AComPAÑA program have been working with these communities and their representatives for some time as part of our community development activities. 

In total, the funds will provide up to $700,000 to produce two resilience plans that will help both communities establish, design, and implement resilience actions based on the priorities that each community puts forth.

We also wish to thank
the following partner organizations
and agencies for their support.

Arbor Day Foundation:
Reforestation

USFWS Sierra Bermeja
Recovery Actions: Biodiversity and Conservation

Segarra Boerman:
Legislative Oversight

Thank you!

Again, we extend our thanks to you, our supporters. Our efforts depend on you, and our mission is accomplished because of our community of which you are a vital part. 

As we make way for a summer full of tasks dedicated to the islands of Puerto Rico, it serves us well to remember that community – from the agronomists who manage the planting to the donors who care — bring us closer to nature and that is why we continue to move forward. Thank you!
