Stamford, Conn. and Washington, D.C.—BTS USA, a leading global strategy implementation consultancy, has partnered with rainforest conservation specialist World Land Trust-US to purchase and protect 100 acres of threatened tropical rainforest in South America’s Chocó biogeographic region.
“BTS’s continued success and global growth brings a responsibility to build more sustainability into the business,” said Jonas Akerman, president and CEO of BTS USA. “We recognize sustainability as a critical global priority and are proud to be able to fulfill our responsibility through this excellent organization.”
BTS USA’s donation will assist in establishing the Las Tangaras Nature Reserve in Colombia, one of the most vital rainforest sites on earth home to a high concentration of biodiversity. In addition to safeguarding the habitat and exotic species, the Las Tangaras Nature Reserve will also protect the watershed of the Rio Atrato- the region’s most important river- which serves as a vital economic resource for tens of thousands of inhabitants living in poor rural communities.
World Land Trust-US (WLT-US) is a conservation organization dedicated to preserving biodiversity through strategic land purchases, working with local partners to acquire and save threatened rainforests and other critical habitats. Over the past 22 year, WLT-US has secured almost 2 million acres for biodiversity conservation. Currently, the Las Tangaras Nature Reserve is a critical initiative for the environmental non-profit.
Dr. Paul Salaman, director of conservation at World Land Trust-US, reflected, “Our partnership with BTS has been vital in achieving the goal of building one of the most vitally-needed rainforest corridors and protected areas for wildlife in South America.” This year, the strategy implementation consultancy hopes to have a similar impact.
