Why and How
Mission, Vision and Values
Since 1872, 10 percent of the world’s natural areas have been protected by governmental parks and conservation programs across the globe. But according to scientists, that is still not enough. To avoid massive extinctions and to fight the changes in climate, at least another 10 percent of the world’s natural areas need to be protected within 50 years.
Grow Jungles, a non-profit 501[c]3 organization, seeks to add value to conservation by harnessing the power of technology and modern science and connect conservationists across the world to help further the protection and maintenance of Costa Rican rainforests.
Grow Jungles ensures the continuation of the protection of all biodiversity, ecosystems, and local community outreach. Conservation through protecting land and community lead while supporting local projects and nonprofit collaboration.
Our vision is to be the go-to resource for connecting conservationist land buyers with rainforest territory owners looking to sell, with the interest of saving threatened ecosystems and transforming the lives of the people affected by them.
Our Core Value
Transparency: We create a transparent environment for everyone involved, including donors, buyers, and sellers. And community leaders.
Integrity: We maintain an unwavering commitment to upholding our mission and vision in complete transparency and through ethical and moral actions.
Respect: We welcome all perspectives, talents, and ideas, not only from our staff but from the entire community we serve. We also uphold a high level of respect for all animal and plant life.
Direct action: We believe that we can affect the greatest changes through a boots-on-the-ground and grassroots approach to action, working in partnership with every person, regardless of their position.
Self-awareness: We believe we are judged by our actions and how we interact with the natural world. We acknowledge the importance of being aware of our strengths and weaknesses in fostering lasting change and saving our world.
Working together & achieving results
We accomplish conservation by helping landowners protect and preserve the natural integrity of the properties they sell. This innovative, realistic approach has proven to be one of the best models for conservation.
We are also assisting communities in creating an eco-based economy while preserving rainforests, protecting endangered wildlife, and reintroducing endangered species.
There is a definitive need to accelerate conservation awareness and provide new solutions to the fundamental conservation model. We seek to leverage technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, and Cloud Computing to propel conservation in Costa Rica.
