About this Map

In the 1960's this land was covered in dense tropical montane rainforest until the landowners chopped it down, sold the wood and transformed the precious and endangered ecosystems to pasture. In the landowner's old age, he became unable to care for his cattle and abandoned the land allowing invasive weeds to spread and erosion to occur. I bought it from him and have taken steps to restore the land by organically planting thousands of native trees, fruit trees, nut trees, and a wide variety of other beneficial plants. I built one of the only cob ovens in the area. It functions as a dehydrator and kiln as well. Despite all the devastation, this land still contains the largest intact forest ecosystem in a two or three mile radius where wild sloths and toucans hide in hopes that their habitats will return the way they were before being destroyed. These sloths have been around for millions of years, longer than humans so Finca Salverde protects and preserves these endangered animals from poaching and habitat destruction.
