Where We Work
Central America has diverse ecosystems varying from tropical forests, subtropical forests, mountains, grasslands, mangroves, and wetlands. This region is home to thousands of plant, bird, reptile, mammal, and amphibian species. Some of these species do not exist anywhere else in the world.
Deforestation is threatening the flora and the fauna of Central America. The primary drivers of deforestation in Central America include illegal logging, poaching, mining, and the expansion of farming and grazing. Even protected areas in this region experience high rates of poaching and deforestation.
Despite challenges with the pandemic, Eden was able to launch reforestation sites in Central America during 2020. We are planting trees in protected areas that have suffered from deforestation. Eden works with local communities to restore forests that create natural habitats for endemic species meanwhile creating livelihood opportunities for impoverished households.
