Success Stories

Your donations and votes help stop biodiversity loss.

Location: Peru

Conservation Partner: Neotropical Primate Conservation

TiME paid: $30,000 US

Size of purchase: 66 hectares

Ecoregion: Peruvian yungas

With your donations, TiME protected the habitat of the Critically Endangered yellow-tailed woolly monkey and many other threatened species. This land lies at the heart of the Tropical Andes Biodiversity Hotspot, one of the most biologically diverse regions on earth. The region suffers from one of the highest rates of deforestation in Peru.

TiME paid: $17,000 US

Size of purchase: 700 hectares

Ecoregion: Peruvian Yungas

TiME’s successful crowdfunding allowed the local community to expand and better protect an Amazonian conservation area. The original reserve’s horse-shoe shape made it harder to protect from illegal loggers, hunters and squatters. TiME purchased land in the interior U-shape and then signed it over to the local conservation organization, the Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios La Primavera (APALP). Now many rare, endemic and threatened species of birds and mammals, including the Endangered Royal Sun Angel Hummingbird (Heliangelus regalis) and the Endangered White-fronted Spider Monkey (Ateles belzebuth) are protected.

Ecoregion: Eastern Miombo woodlands

Dakatcha Woodland is part of the East African Coastal Forests Global Hotspot and is a refuge for endangered species found at only a handful of other sites. The Endangered Clarke’s Weaver (Ploceus golandi) is found in only two places on Earth: Dakatcha Woodland and Arabuko-Sokoke Forest, on the coast of Kenya. But Clarke’s Weaver ONLY nests in Dakatcha Woodland. Thanks to you and TiME, the Clarke's Weaver and other threatened species will be now be protected.

Ecoregion: Tropical moist broadleaf forests

Part of the Maya Golden Landscape in southern Belize, Rosewood Landing creates ecological connectivity over large landscapes, providing ideal habitat for species that require extensive ranges to survive, including large mammals like Jaguar (Panthera onca) and Puma (Puma concolor), and endangered species like the Yucatán black howler monkey (Alouatta pigra) and Baird’s tapir (Tapirus bairdii).

Location: Belize

Conservation Partner: Turneffe Atoll Trust (TAT)

TiME paid: $30,000 US

Size of purchase: 5 acres

Ecoregion: Belizean Reef mangroves

TiME's purchase of a 5-acre plot on Turneffe Atoll has protected part of a global ecological hotspot for marine biodiversity. Turneffe Atoll faces numerous threats because of its close proximity to Belize City, especially unsustainable fishing practices, development and dredging, and the extraction of non-timber products.

TiME's land purchase will expand the Serra Bonita Reserve (SBR) in Brazil’s most endangered biome and the world’s second-most threatened hotspot. In addition to protecting many threatened species, this expansion will ensure the survival of predators that require large, unbroken territories, like the Puma (Puma concolor) and the Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja).

Location: Colombia

Conservation Partner: Fundación Biodiversa Colombia (FBC)

TiME paid: Purchase in progress

Size of purchase: Purchase in progress

Ecoregion: Magdalena-Urabá moist forests

TiME will expand the El Silencio reserve in the threatened Tumbes-Chocó-Magdalena biodiversity hotspot. In addition to protecting threatened species, this expansion makes the reserve much more interesting as an ecotourist destination and of greater interest to national and international researchers, such as primatologists or ornithologists. Development will be carried out with limited impact on the environment and in collaboration with the local community, for which it could generate employment opportunities.
