What Is the Cost of Deforestation?

Our Mission

Adopt a Panama Rainforest (ADOPTA) is a nongovernmental organization dedicated to the conservation of Panama’s unique ecosystems. Through donations and volunteer efforts, we are working to protect the natural wonders of Panama and educate the general public about the importance of the neotropics.

Our Approach

Panama is home to some of the most amazing biodiversity in the world. With over 1,200 species of trees alone, any singular approach to conservation would be hopelessly inadequate to protect such a complex environment. Therefore, we focus on four foundational approaches to conservation:

Current Projects

Cerro Chucantí

Discover a secret world hidden in the cloud-covered mountains of Panama’s remote Darién region where a rare ecosystem nearly disappeared forever.

Neotropical Flyways Project

Why are migratory bird populations declining? We hope to find out by studying them as they migrate through Central and South America.

Reforestation

Panama loses about 1% of its old-growth forests every year. We’re joining the Alliance for a Million Hectares to reverse this trend and bring back vital habitat.
