Women for Conservation successfully funded an ambitious donation campaign to halt illegal logging that was decimating critical habitat in the Chocó rainforest.
Located within the lush rainforests of central Colombia, El Paujil Reserve and El Jaguar Reserve together protect over 13,300 acres and are refuges to many threatened and endangered species. However, since the arrival of COVID-19, increases in trespassing on reserve property have posed a worsening threat to the conservation of these species and their habitat....
Women for Conservation is partnering with Fundación ProAves to save vital acres of Chocó rainforest, made possible only through donor support.
Representing Women for Conservation, Founder and Executive Director Sara Lara hosted a booth and met with visitors at the Fall Wildlife Conservation Expo that is held annually by Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) in San Francisco. Each year, WCN gathers conservationists from around the world to exhibit and speak about their work that protects endangered wildlife globally. The expo offers a unique opportunity for supporters to unite, connect, network, and share stories about their experiences.
Today, Women for Conservation joins over 150 leading environmental and reproductive health organizations to pledge support for a first-of-its-kind campaign: Thriving Together, led by the Margaret Pyke Trust. Organizations that participate in Thriving Together form a diverse global alliance united by the agreement that improving access to family planning services is critically important for protecting the environment and biodiversity.
Uniting with several local organizations, Women for Conservation participated in the Fauquier Climate Change Rally in Warrenton, Virginia. The event raised awareness about the negative impact of climate change while advocating solutions to reduce global greenhouse emissions.
During the summer of 2019, Sara Lara decided to pursue her dream of fully dedicating herself to Women for Conservation and established the organization as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, based in Virginia. She looks forward to working with women around the world to advance environmental education, to support their involvement in policies that benefit land conservation and wildlife protection, and to help them be heard and seen - using the organization as a platform to promote their work.
