Until Tuesday, November 28, Para la Naturaleza, a Puerto Rican environmental conservation and historic preservation organization, joins the global movement #GivingTuesday, which seeks to encourage charitable donations to various causes around the world.
For the second consecutive year the organization joins the Giving Tuesday movement, this time by raising contributions for the Para la Naturaleza Community Fund, an initiative established after Hurricane Maria’s devastating impact on the island in September. The Community Fund focuses its efforts on bringing immediate support to the communities of Puerto Rico, and bolstering its ongoing programs dedicated to agroecology, reforestation and restoration of natural habitats.
“The Para la Naturaleza team is actively helping communities surrounding our protected areas and nature reserves. We have designated immediate relief funds to support agroecology. We have an immediate action plan to start a massive reforestation project and to restore natural habitats. It is time to support nature and work together to transform Puerto Rico into a sustainable country,” explained Fernando Lloveras San Miguel, President of Para la Naturaleza.
On Giving Tuesday, November 28, Para la Naturaleza employees will carry out various community activities within the four regions of the organization. These include planting trees, maintaining community gardens, distributing essential items, as well as clearing debris and vegetative material. All the activities will be carried out in the areas surrounding the wildlife reserves that the organization protects.
“Since we activated the Community Fund, we received the immediate support of the Puerto Rican community inside and outside the United States. The strong response and showing of support has been extraordinary, “added Lloveras San Miguel.
