IPS Save the Species

To preserve the Serranía, Salvamontes, a nonprofit NGO,  with support from the International Palm Society, will acquire about 100 hectares of rainforest at La Paloma camp, with an additional 130 hectares to follow. Not only will this result in the successful conservation of Sabinaria magnifica in habitat, but at least another 30 species of palms, along with the “jaguars and wonderful monkeys and toucans.”

 Our Save the Species effort directly targets rainforest and habitat protection. To do so we will provide financial support to in-situ conservation, upkeep, and preservation. Acquisition of this patch of rainforest is the first step towards the successful conservation of this extraordinary palm genus. Additionally, we will continue to sponsor ex-situ conservation of Sabinaria magnifica. Furthermore, this fundraiser will enable researchers to continue their scientific inquiries. 

 The Sabinaria magnifica fundraiser will contribute toward saving this magnificent palm in habitat, and the diverse rainforest within the critically threatened Darién Gap. 

Please consider supporting our campaign - now through May 1, 2022.
