Good morning Group,
Our NGO/ONG Association ABTC-BRASIL is actively searching for persons with experience in finding corporate sponsors to help us raise money for our community projects in Brazil.
We are a tourism group, mostly Americans, and quite a few of living in Brazil now.
Doug Trent, President of the Focus Conservation Fund, has offered the services of the FCF to allow charitable tax credits for USA donors.
Today, with the advent of even more corporate taxes, many companies are in search of worthwhile causes to support. This is called Corporate social responsibility (or CSR). Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability continue to grow in importance in today's business environment.
We have long been a member also of Development Crossing.
Development Crossing promotes the growth of CSR and Sustainability through a network of professionals that have access to exclusive interviews, breaking news, discussions and global events.
If you are interested in helping us you can also contact me personally.

Puerto Rico, more than a Modern Caribbean Island

In my country we offer a lot of options and opportunities for those who loved ecoturism, and tropical wildlife preservation, for example:

El Yunque Rain Forest- The El Yunque National Forest is managed by the US Forest Service who maintain an extensive network of hiking trails. Picnic facilities, paved trails and tour bus parking. The 'El Portal' exhibit hall and lookout towers are on the North side. The South side is the quiet side. You should spend a few nights in the forest to really appreciate the peace and beauty. (Rainforest Lodging).

"Caja de Muerto" Island- The island has remained a protected area ever since.The protection is mainly due to its heavy turtle traffic which is an endangered species

Mona Island- The island is a natural reserve, and though there are no native inhabitants, rangers from Puerto Rico's Department of Natural and Environmental Resources reside on the island to manage visitors and take part in research projects. Due to the islands' unique topography, ecology and location, Mona, Desecheo and Monito have been nicknamed "The Galápagos Islands of the Caribbean". Scientists, ecologists, and students have visited Mona Island to explore its distinct ecosystem, which includes the endemic Mona Ground Iguana. The island is also home to many cave drawings that were left behind by the island's original inhabitants. Remains of the guano mining industry can also be seen. Now is protected by UNESCO as a "World Patrimony"

Also, In my company we offer aerial support (helicopters) for international scientific expeditions to other remote islands along the coasts of Puerto Rico.

In the past we support and worked with international scientific expeditions responsible for the preservation and stabilization of many different species endangered in the planet that are using our island as one of the stops during migrations (ex. blue whales, brown booby, manatees, turtle, etc...)

For some aerial pictures of Puerto Rico, please visit my page and enjoy your staying in the caribbean.
