Barnens regnskog (Children's rainforest) is a Swedish non-profit organization, founded by Eha Kern in 1987, that only co-operates with organizations that are well established within the local population and the countries governments. The organization must have specific programs for purchasing of rainforest, working on environmental education among the local population, regional development and afforestation. All purchases of rainforest from private owners must be done voluntary and in full agreement. Residents in the area may stay if they wish. Those who sell their forests are using the money to buy more land or start a small business, which will increase their quality of life. The forest will be registered as a reserve and the local organization becomes legal landowners. Save forest on www.barnensregnskog.se
The Area de Conservación Guanacaste (ACG) is 120,000 terrestrial hectares and 43,000 marine hectares of permanently conserved, government owned and managed wild lands in northwestern Costa Rica ran by Daniel Janzen. It began in 1971 with the goal of restoring and conserving an entire tropical dry forest ecosystem. Aims of the project: The two primary goals of the ACG from its inception were first to set in place the full scale restoration of an entire dry tropical forest ecosystem, and second to insure that its wildland biodiversity survives into the indefinite future through the integration of the ACG into local, national and international society through non-damaging use. The first goal is now realised to the point where centuries of succession have to run their course, and the second goal is in place, experienced, and generally running about as well as can be expected given the overall political, historical and economic state of Costa Rica.
