What we’ve been doing

With the unforeseeable nature of this pandemic, we have temporarily closed our doors to visitors. If you are interested in staying at Yachana Lodge, please contact us to make future reservations. Our remote location presents challenges out of our control and has vastly cut us off from the world. As a response to this crisis, we have decided to pivot our focus towards our non-profit projects. And we want you to become involved.

Under the circumstances, we felt this was the best way to continue our mission as a non-profit, but also inform the world about the dire changes happening in our rainforests. We ask you to not only help our cause to protect the Amazon Rainforest but recognize the bigger picture surrounding global climate change.

How Can You Help?

Each year, an estimated 18,700,000 acres of forest is lost to deforestation, which is equal to 27 soccer fields every minute.

Maintaining rainforest is the best and easiest climate change solution available today. The CO2 taken out of the air and biodiversity conserved justifies the investment in its protection.

When you purchase a life block of rainforest It is protected for life. You decide how many plots you want to support. The plot will be in your name or a name of your choice for perpetuity and designated with GPS coordinates.​

This project has a multiplier effect where the funds generated through the program will allow the trust to buy and protect the additional rainforest. Investing in this program will give individuals and corporations the opportunity to promote their offset of CO2 and for them to know they are doing something positive to counteract the current rainforest crisis and protect the planet.​
