ABOUT CAMINO VERDE
Camino Verde's reforestation centre is a pilot site for innovative agroforestry systems and restoration strategies. They have reforested over 20 hectares (50 acres) with 25,000 trees representing over 400 different species of trees. Their nurseries produce 20,000 tree seedlings and over a hundred species each year.
Camino Verde is also home to over 100 hectares (250 acres) of primary rainforest that we protect.
Today, they are sharing their most successful strategies with farmers and native communities in the Amazon of Peru, bringing back forests to areas degraded by agriculture, gold mining, and ranching.
Their reforestation centre is located on the Tambopata River and is accessible from the city of Puerto Maldonado via a 2-hour taxi and boat ride.
