"...Cuando llueve reverdece y cuando no, dormido permanece bajo el sol..."
Tropical dry forests (TdF), distributed through Latin America and the Caribbean, are currently critically threatened due to human pressure and biodiversity loss. With less than 10% of its original extent in some countries, it is the ecosystem with the highest conservation and restoration priority. Because of this, the DEC (Dry Ecosystems of Colombia) Foundation has worked during 15 uninterrupted years, contributing to expand the knowledge on TdF and leading the establishment of protected areas for the conservation and connection of forest relicts still present in the Caribbean region of Colombia.
Every contribution counts!
Tropical Dry Forest ecosystems, and with the hundreds of plant and animal species inhabiting them, need your support to guaranty their conservation and long term reforesting. There are three main ways to support the DEC foundation:
- Sponsoring: : If you are interested in economically support a particular project, you can contact us. You can also provide support by communicating and spreading our work. We will make sure to give recognition to our sponsors.
- Contribution: : If you want to make a donation, you can do it in two ways: money and in-kind aid. Send us an e-mail and we will get in touch with you soon.
- Volunteering: : If you are interested in collaborating with the development of our projects, you must pay attention to the DEC foundation announcements on our social media platforms.
The Ecosistemas Secos de Colombia Foundation is registered as a non-profit organization in Colombia. With your contribution, you can receive a donation certificate, deductible from your income tax, while supporting the conservation of the Tropical Dry Forest and survival of hundreds of species such as the cotton-top tamarin, a species that exists only in parts of the Caribbean region of Colombia.
