The Children’s Eternal Rainforest is a 54,000 acre rainforest preserve in Northwest Costa Rica. It was started by children around the world collecting money to buy and preserve sections of rainforest. The Children’s Eternal Rainforest protects a lot of types of plants and animals. There are at least 161 species of amphibians and reptiles, 425 birds, 121 mammals, 3000 plants, and 658 butterflies that need the rainforest to survive. Their current plan is to buy land to create a corridor from the mountains to the coastal plains. It is important to donate money so that the animals can have a safe place to travel through from one place to another.
For more information about this rainforest, go to mclus.org or acmcr.org. We were featured in the November newsletter of MCLUS (where we send money). See it here!
I have been raising money and also donating some of my own money to the BEN since I was 6.
