Area: Anchorage, AlaskaMy husband and I are currently in the process of restoring a very sad and neglected house located in Anchorage, Alaska. The house is still a work in progress, we’re still working on the inside and the outside is half way there. We need a lot of help! So come help with building, gardening, making ceramics and other useful projects. You get to stay in a private room that we just completely renovated. So you can have some privacy when you get tired of hanging out with us. The upstairs is mostly done, we are currently working on backyard landscaping and on finishing the basement.
Area:COMMUNITY RESERVE: In 1994, a Conservation International expedition discovered that this place was potentially the most bio-diverse hotspot in the world. Thanks to that expedition, a few years later, Madidi National Park was created. Nonetheless, the area where the study was done was left out of the park’s boundaries. Consequently, the Candelaria Madidi buffer zone and community reserve was created to preserve this most important part of the Madidi area. The diversity of vascular plants, vines and birds, in this specific place, is twice as much as the other more visited regions inside Madidi. In addition, this place is the last undisturbed biomass corridor between the flood plain savannahs to the north and the Andes Mountains to the south. For this reason, there is an above average transit of large mammals, especially tapirs and jaguars. If this wasn’t enough, it was here where the most recently discovered monkey was found, the “callicebus aureipalatii”; and it is here, where Bolivia’s last isolated tribe remains, the Toromonas. The Alto Madidi is an invaluable treasure that remains hidden to most people. This is an opportunity to get to know it and help with its conservation.
