Check in often as we add new perks, increase our goal and share other foundational pillars of the Ijolli Project!

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (La Sierra) mountain range in Colombia is the world's most irreplaceable bioregion, according to the IUCN. La Sierra is also the ancient home of the “Guardians of the Earth”, the indigenous Kogi, Arhuaco, Wiwa and Kankuamo people.
Located in the Sierra Nevadas, the Green Heart land shelters the headwaters of the Janindu Natural Reserve’s river basin, ancient indigenous sacred sites and endangered animal species. We must protect the 1,525 acres of the Green Heart land's pristine humid tropical forest.
The Sierra Nevadas are home to six ecoregions, 350 bird species, 36 rivers and the highest coastal mountain range as well as 126 plant species, 49 endangered animal species and 44 endemic animal species.
Today, 80% of the original Sierra forest cover is gone.
Right now, the Green Heart land is under imminent risk of deforestation and development which threatens disastrous consequences for the endemic, keystone, and endangered species that live here. We must ensure this land is not acquired by commercial interests who would exploit it for unsustainable industrial or agricultural practices.

The Ijolli Project is dedicated to protecting the Green Heart land through ecological conservation and establishing a land trust. Purchased land will be protected and registered as a natural reserve and incorporated in an extensive ecological corridor.

As guardians and stewards, Tradewinds, Vientos Alisios, Fundación TierrAmar, and the International Center for Spiritual & Ancestral Wisdom (ONAC of ICSAW) have formed the Ijolli Alliance. Now, our goal in Phase 2 of the Ijolli Project is to expand the ecological corridor and environmental sanctuary of the Janindu Natural Reserve.  

Your contribution will go directly towards ensuring the protection of this land.

This is a Call to Action to preserve life in all of its forms. We can only do this together with your support. 

We thank you on behalf of the plants, animals, and communities of the Ijolli Project, the Janindu Natural Reserve, and the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. Thank you for helping to preserve the Green Heart land’s jaguar habitat, indigenous sacred sites, and for ensuring that this invaluable water source stays clean and pure.

If you resonate with the Ijolli Project, we encourage you to share this message with intention to all those who care for our beautiful  Mother Earth.

Muchas gracias! Thank you for your support!
