Guatemala Cloud Forest Eco-Adventure
Spring Equinox – March 19 – 29, 2020
Eco-Adventure & Service Trip in the ancient Mayan cloud forest of Cerro el Amay:
This is part of our legacy project.
Inchanted Journeys is working with the Cloud Forest Conservation Initiative, IMAP, FUNDAECO, CONAP, Rainforest Trust and others to coordinate this journey of discovery, adventure, and service. In the last 2.5 years, we have raised over a $6.2M to protect this ancient forest because of this eco-adventure and connected efforts. All of these funds have gone directly into land conservation, land purchases, and to support local staff salaries. Some of the proceeds from this Journey will aid in the preservation of the cloud forest, the conservation of the rural Forest Mayan communities we are teaming with, as well as continue to support additional field research as we discover new species to science every year!
