We are planting trees to restore ecosystems in Lambayeque, a region with underrepresented dry forest ecosystems. 

By planting trees in Lambayeque, we aim to safeguard animal and tree species including several threatened species from the IUCN Red List such as the Andean Bear which is threatened by habitat degradation, given an approximate 30% of habitats are unsuitable for inhabitants due to lack of connectivity. Habitat suitability is also greatly decreased by human development activities including but not limited to; exploration for oil or expansion for agriculture. Therefore, our restoration efforts aim to reinforce the underrepresented ecosystems in the Chaparri Ecological Reserve. This reserve is in dire need of conservation due to several incidences of urban invasion and extended periods of drought. As part of our restoration efforts, local inhabitants receive training and incentives to protect the ecosystem and engage in sustainable harvesting practices.
