Team member spotlight
Eliecer Valle is one of Paso Pacifico’s newest Sea Turtle Rangers hired
this fall thanks to the support of the Wood Tiger Fund. Eliecer is from
the community of Tortuga where he worked as a farmer.
Just last month he participated in the Turtle Trot 5k race at Rancho
Santana and took first place, beating out 55 other runners. The purpose
of the event was to raise money for sea turtle conservation at Playa
Escondida. Felicidades Eliecer y bienvenido a Paso Pacifico!
The earth is changing. But Paso Pacifico is helping to reduce the
impacts of climate change on communities. We are restoring forests that
store carbon and reduce flooding from storms. Since 2005, we have
planted over a half a million trees.
& help restore forest.
We are grateful to all of our generous donors who contributed to our
2013 annual campaign. With your support we raised nearly $20,000 which
will help us continue our efforts to conserve and restore the dry
tropical forests of Nicaragua.
We look forward to sharing our successes in the coming year and demonstrating the power of grassroots conservation.
