Para la Naturaleza

The
Mission

We believe in the transformative power of nature and want you to experience it firsthand. Visit with your family and friends and connect with nature as a volunteer.  The hours you give will contribute to the planting of 750,000 native and endemic trees, educate on the importance of maintaining the health of ecosystems and help grow the resources needed to ensure that 33% of lands in Puerto Rico are protected by 2033. Choose an activity and time that most interests you and get back to nature.

The vision
Volunteers

Hundreds of people like you are the champions of the conservation history that we’re writing together. The ecosystems we work in, the species we help thrive and the allied communities and schools will all feel your effort. We thank you.

"Mi agradecimiento a ustedes por la labor que están realizando para el País y para la Naturaleza.La pasé muy bien, desde ese día admito que veo la siembra de los árboles de manera distinta. De hecho, quiero compartir con ustedes algo que me llamó la atención en los pasados días: En el expreso 52 que están construyendo nuevos carriles, eliminaron TODOS los árboles del centro para poder abrir paso a la construcción. Eran unos árboles bastante grandes. Esto nos motiva a continuar aportando para reforestar a Puerto Rico. Un abrazo."

Citizen scientists learn and eventually implement scientific methodology in diverse ecosystems. These volunteers become part of programs, projects and science initiatives like: Champion Trees, Map of Life, the Sapo Concho recovery project, Iguana Control, among others.

Citizen botanists play a key part of acheiving the goal to germinate, plant and maintain 750,000 native trees by 2024. These volunteers are part of an ecological recovery program and work in tree nurseries located in and outside of the natural protected areas.
