Save the Species

Support the International Palm Society During This Year’s #GivingTuesday.


Between #GivingTuesday, November 30th, and August 1, 2022, donate to Save the Species and ALL donations will be matched up to $10,000! We have created a GoFundMe to save the Sabinaria magnifica in habitat and the diverse rainforest within the critically threatened Darién Gap. 

WHAT IS Save the Species?

Our Save the Species effort directly targets rainforest and habitat protection.

To do so, we:

  • Provide financial support to in-situ conservation, upkeep, and preservation. 
  • Sponsor the ex-situ conservation of Sabinaria magnifica.
  • Enable researchers to continue their scientific inquiries.

With your help, we will acquire about 100 hectares of rainforest at La Paloma camp, with an additional 130 hectares to follow. Not only will this result in the successful conservation of Sabinaria magnifica in habitat, but at least another 30 species of palms, along with the “jaguars and wonderful monkeys and toucans.”
