Natural, low-cost initiatives that you can support now
Sitting back and waiting for others to take action is not an option. Time is short to restore Lake Atitlán’s ecosystem before it becomes degraded beyond the point of recovery.
We depend on people like you to support our remediation projects. If we have convinced you that urgent action is needed to save Lake Atitlán, please consider making a donation and encouraging your family and friends to help us too. Every dollar makes a difference to our ability to mitigate the dire effects of constant pollution and buy time for long-term solutions. And every cent we receive in donations is spent on remediation projects – we are an all-volunteer organization with zero overheads.
Get in touch! If you are visiting the lake or if you live here, why not volunteer? If you have ideas for fundraising we would love to hear from you.
