The non-profit foundation Nature for Future has been in existence since 2013 but has really taken off in the past year. With our home base in Costa Rica, we now have everything we need to really put our mission and vision into action.
The name 'Nature For Future' is inspired by our mission to work together on a future in which health and bio-diverse nature are central.
Biodiversity is crucial for a balanced ecosystem. Together with local scientists, NFF ensures the conservation of endangered tree and animal species.
Thru nature education projects we promote awareness and the importance of this among young and old.
Smart reforestation means smart collaboration and sharing of knowledge.
We are grateful for the specialists and partners who commit themselves to our goals. We bring the right people together and ensure solid and efficient cooperation.
This results in optimal impact.
Our dream is to connect the two most important nature reserves in Costa Rica as a corridor within 10 years.
As a result, 100 km² (= 10,000 hectares) of tropical forest will be added, we will ensure the conservation of rare animals and local employment.
It works like this:
Through NFF, companies and private individuals can design their own CO₂ reduction plan. Efficient, reliable and relatively cheap.
NFF selects, buys and manages the piece of jungle that you want to use for your CO₂ compensation. Tropical forest is champion of CO₂ absorption!
Our first 83 hectares of jungle was enough to offset the emissions of more than 250 Dutch households.
We chose Costa Rica because it is spacious and rich in bio-diversity.
A tropical climate also ensures rapid growth. Costa Rica also has supporting legislation and there is already a lot of knowledge about reforestation and conservation. We often work together with local partners and specialists.
Costa Rica is therefore an ideal partner country to achieve climate goals!
An increase in CO₂ and other greenhouse gases is a global problem.
Do we want a livable planet for future generations? Then we have to take good care of 'the lungs of the earth'.
You can efficiently contribute to this by collaborating with the Nature For Future Foundation.
We are happy to show you how we work!
In 2021 the first tree was ceremonially planted together with the previous owners of our first plot (83 hectares).
This was the official go-ahead for our foundation's reforestation project.
With the help of our specialists, partners and volunteers, we have already planted more than 2000 trees and protected 263 hectares!
