Mission Statement

Rainforest2Reef is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of the biological corridor stretching from the rainforest of the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve to the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve to the Mesoamerican Reef.

Rainforest2Reef's mission is to protect biodiversity, maintain ecosystem services, and slow climate change by safeguarding tropical forests, coral reefs and the corridors connecting these threatened habitats. We do this by working in partnership with local communities to protect ecologically important lands through innovative mechanisms, using sound scientific research to manage and monitor protected areas, and developing non-extractive economic activities that improve livelihoods of local people.

Description

Our objectives and Goals:

  • Conserve 350,000 acres of prime jaguar habitat in the Southwestern Buffer Zone of the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve.
  • Protect jaguars and 60,000 other species of plants and animals.
  • Support on-going research and monitoring on jaguar and bird ecology.
  • Improve livelihoods of local communities around the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve to reduce pressure on natural resources
  • Promote environmental education about the critical corridor connecting Calakmul and Sian Kaan
  • Create and capitalize trust fund for long-term, sustainable financing of newly protected areas in the Selva Maya rainforest.
