Sustainable Practices Research


What we are doing

To help create a more sustainable future, we must find new ways of meeting our needs in more efficient ways. For example, our Agroforest program aims to help us build food systems that are not reliant on chemical inputs. Another way is Aquaponics, a system that grows plants and fish while saving water use by cycling the water between two growing beds. 
We are working on bringing these technologies to rural communities in Northern Peru, that are often unable to have access to such knowledge. We are hoping to implement the technology into the local communities with environmental, economic, and cultural considerations which is why we are working with groups in Northern Peru.


If you'd like to learn more about Aquaponics, please check out the resource below, provided by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.


Help us out



Your donations will help to support our biologists and activists in Northern Peru to implement systems that will promote food resiliency in what is now a food desert due to changing global dynamics.
