Help save critically endangered cotton-top tamarin habitat that will otherwise be sold to destructive cattle ranching interests.

The tiny cotton-top tamarin numbers less than 6,000 individuals, and has already suffered the loss of 80% of its habitat -- 30% in just the last decade. It lives only in northwest Colombia, in a rainforest that also supports hundreds of bird species and many other mammals, including the elusive jaguar and the spectacled bear.

But much of the remaining habitat is owned privately - and in addition to being threatened by agriculture, fuel, and housing, now cattle interests want to buy it, and tear down the rainforest to create grazing land.

Rainforest Trust has a great reputation for fairness and land management among the Colombian people, and most would prefer to sell their land for conservation rather than destructive cattle ranching. The Rainforest Trust program includes the initial land purchase, long-term habitat protection and management for species survival, training local indigenous people to monitor the land, and making the reserve self-sustaining through locally directed ecotourism.

Help save the cotton-top tamarin, and all the other creatures that share this special habitat. Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ protects Colombian rainforest habitat of the cotton-top tamarin.


Rainforest Trust (formerly World Land Trust-US) is proud to have saved over 7 million acres of endangered habitats in 15 countries and 65 sites since its inception in 1989. Their proven conservation approach and established network of dedicated local conservation organizations allow them to identify key rainforest sites containing the last populations of endangered wildlife under imminent threat. Rainforest Trust moves swiftly to purchase and protect these biodiversity treasures permanently throughout Central and South America. Their effective model empowers indigenous communities and local partners to steward their own lands. Through this stewardship, as well as education, training, and economic stimulants like eco-tourism for the indigenous people, Rainforest Trust is ensuring the lands they save are securing a rich and more diverse future for all life on earth.
