Brazil

Sporophila seedeaters form one of the few groups of Neotropical birds for which breeding biology is well-studied; however, there are still poorly understood, issues. An example of a poorly-researched species is Chestnut Seedeater S. cinnamomea, which breeds in the Pampas grasslands of southern South America and presumably spend nonbreeding season in the Cerrado of Central Brazil.

Colombia

In recent decades the decline of bumblebee populations has been of great interest, due to the ecological role that these insects play on crops and wild plants. Colombia is a country highly dependent on agricultural products, despite this, there are few studies aimed to the knowledge and care about bumblebees as well as its importance as pollinators.

Peru

Plant your Future works with smallholder farmers in the northern Peruvian Amazon region of Loreto to restore degraded farmland with productive agroforestry. The region is internationally recognised as mega-biodiverse. Slash-and-burn agriculture poses a threat to that biodiversity; it is the main driver of deforestation locally.

Belize

Belize is home to 80% of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (MBRS). We are partnering with a Belize-based NGO called "Fragments of Hope" to continue work on this project. Fragments of Hope is based in Placencia, Belize, which is where we will make our home base during the reciprocal transplant and outplanting efforts enclosed here.
