Hoja Nueva is a dynamic 501(C)(3) non-profit (EIN: 47-4323459) working in the remote Las Piedras region of Madre de Dios, Peru. We confront deforestation in the Peruvian Amazon by strategically acquiring conservation lands and creating corridors; building capacity within remote and indigenous communities through one health and alternative income opportunities; implementing rigorous scientific research; and reintroducing threatened species to the wild. Hoja Nueva also works with migrant communities that practice large-scale slash and burn agriculture, which diminishes biodiversity by causing habitat destruction and fragmentation. Hoja Nueva’s sustainable cacao agroforestry farms decrease environmental impact, helping train and organize migrant farmers to transition sustainable by obtaining fair wages.
