Program Description:

The Living Seed Bank is a multi-faceted ongoing program for the preservation of the biodiversity of Madre de Dios.  The program is based at our center in Baltimori, on the Tambopata River in the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve.   The primary focus of the Seed Bank is on trees: 1. We identify and propagate the greatest possible variety of economically important tree species (for timber, medicines, fruits, nuts, building materials, etc.), with 150 species planted to date.  Some of these trees are familiar while others have never been domesticated.  2. We work toward the preservation of the genetic diversity within key species of endangered and over-exploited trees (primarily timber species) through the Camino Verde Heritage Tree Species.  Each Heritage Species consists of over 50 individual trees (and in some cases 200 or more), to create a diverse and healthy genetic stock from which to draw seed for future reforestation.  As wild populations of many of these species erode due to irresponsible harvesting, the Living Seed Bank ensures healthy genetic resources for each of these trees.  3. As many of the trees we plant have never been planted in a cultivated setting, we carry out ongoing evaluation of growth rates and productivity, with the aim of identifying species that could become commercially important as alternative crops for small farmers.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Camino Verde's work is focused in the Tambopata river basin in Madre de Dios, Peru. The nearby Tambopata Reserve is an important protected area that has been recognized as a biodiversity Hot Spot and is considered by some to be the most biodiverse place on Earth. Sadly, the region's forests and rivers face increasing pressures from migratory agriculture, irresponsible lumber extraction and reckless gold mining.   Camino Verde works to preserve the region's biodiversity by planting important and endangered tree species and working with local farmers to promote agroforestry and reforestation as sustainable alternatives to slash-and-burn for monoculture of annual grains.
