With transparency.

Tropical rainforests are among the most complex and species-rich ecosystems on earth. They stabilize the climate and regulate the global water balance. They are the source of food, medicine, ideas and raw materials that have become an integral part of our lives today. They are the basis of existence and home to millions of people.

TROPICA VERDE has been committed to the preservation of the world’s tropical rainforests since 1989 and thus makes a direct contribution to climate protection. With donations and membership fees, the association supports specific nature and species conservation projects in Costa Rica in close cooperation with the local people. TROPICA VERDE projects are always planned and implemented in close cooperation with local project partners. In addition, TROPICA VERDE provides information through lectures, publications and exhibitions in Germany on the causes and global consequences of the destruction of tropical habitats and makes recommendations for sustainable development.

We are delighted that you would like to find out more about our work. For us, protecting the rainforest means preserving living diversity and improving local living conditions.
