What Is Our Mission?

We’ll Adopt the Rainforest

Adopt a Panamá Rainforest — ADOPTA for short — is a non-governmental organization (NGO) created to promote the conservation of forests and their sustainable use for the benefit of the people and wildlife of Panamá. We support our on-the-ground conservation efforts through education initiatives and research projects that aim to improve our societal understanding of biology, ecology, and management strategies. The majority of these efforts are accomplished with the generous help of dedicated students and volunteers, who we consider the backbone of our organization.
