Sponsor Pampa Hermosa

http://www.rainforestpartnership.org

 

The Pampa Hermosa community in central Peru has recognized the income potential in ecotourism, and has recently prohibited the hunting of birds, capture of butterflies, killing of bears, extraction of wood and the cutting and burning of forests for additional pasture. The cloudforest that exists in this region is not only beautiful to the eye, but home to numerous endemic species of plants, animals, and birds.

RP is partnering with the community of Pampa Hermosa to realize the ecotourism potential in the area.

RP began Phase 1 of the project in June 2010 when RP intern Patricio Prieto traveled to Pampa Hermosa.  He met with community leaders and project participants to initiate basic ecotourism infrastructure improvements.

In July 2010, RP raised close to $15,000 for the Pampa Hermosa Project in the Global Giving Green Open Challenge.  However, we still need $15,000 to meet our project goal of $30,000 for 2010.  This will fund the construction of simple lodging, the necessary training for project participants, infrastructure improvements in the community, a community-based project coordinator and marketing activities for the area in the US and on the ground in Peru. 

$30 will buy a complete set of guest linens

$70 will buy 10 cement bags necessary for construction

$100 will buy a bed frame and mattress

$250 will fund the construction of two basic shower facilities
