Donate $100 to Preserve 200 Acres of Rainforest, then Save $100 Off any PIB Birding Trip
The Partnership for International Birding works with the Rainforest Trust (primarily for our USA clients) and the World Land Trust (primarily for our UK clients) in saving at least one acre for each of our client bookings. Truly, we budget $100 for each booking. We have saved well over 100,000 acres since this project began. We have gotten some real bargains, saving acres for a little as 12.5 cents per acre. We have also paid for some acres at nearly $400 per acre.
Last month, the Sierra del Divisor project, which was the project we put most of our support behind, became a national park in Peru. In January, we hope to do a full report on all the projects we have supported, and these projects cover South America, Central America, Africa and Asia.
If you are looking for a last minute charitable donation at the end of the year, please consider giving to the World Land Trust or the Rainforest Trust.
If you give to the Rainforest Trust or the World Land Trust, we will give you a matching discount on any of our bird-watching and nature tours. If you give up to £60 to the World Land Trust, we will give £60 off any of our tours. If you give up to $100 to the Rainforest Trust, we will match that as well. This is our thank you gift to you. We essentially provide at least ten hours of support (and often much more) on each of our bookings, and we donate some of this time to offset our price reduction to you.
Currently (as of December 22 in 2015), the Rainforest Trust has five projects where you can conserve acres at less than $7.00 (US Dollars) per acre. Many of these donations are matched by their long-time supporters until the end of the year. So give now. You could donate $100 and save between 30 and 340 acres.
