Meet ARBIO Peru
ARBIO Peru is one of the organizations we support through the Tomorrow Tree Fund, powered by Milkywire. With each PANGAIA product you buy, we plant, protect or restore a tree with the Tomorrow Tree Fund. This means that part of the proceeds go directly to various organizations working in tree planting and conservation, including ARBIO Peru.
How are their initiatives helping the planet?
ARBIO Peru’s mission is to combat the constant threat of deforestation and protect the Amazon Rainforest. They actively protect 916 hectares of Amazon Rainforest from illegal logging. The area in question is home to several ancient “mother trees” (Shihuahuaco trees), a hard wood species that is cut down and prized for expensive floors. These trees are rare and grow very slowly with 85% of Peru’s Shihuahuaco wood exports logged in the Madre de Dios region, as all other regions in the country have already been decimated. These trees are extremely important for the balance of the ecosystem and health of the entire forest.
