OroVerde - Die Tropenwaldstiftung

managed by Andrea S. (Communication)

About us

OroVerde (which means “green gold”) was founded in 1989 by noted personalities from business and natural sciences. The initiator was Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Engelhardt, long-standing Honorary President of Deutscher Naturschutzring Dachverband der deutschen Natur- und Umweltschutzverbände (DNR, German Association for Nature Conservation – central organization of the German associations for nature conservation and the protection of the environment).

The foundation concentrates on saving the Earth’s ecosystems that have the greatest diversity in species, these being tropical rainforests. Its work focuses on biodiversity hotspots, in other words those areas of the world whose extraordinary variety of species is classified as being particularly worth protecting.
- On the one hand, OroVerde achieves this by implementing specific, local tropical forest protection projects. In this context, OroVerde helps to establish national parks, supports reforestation campaigns and projects involving economic activities that preserve the forest. Together with the local population, OroVerde seeks solutions that make it possible to avoid poverty and, simultaneously, to protect the rainforest as a network of life.
- On the other hand, OroVerde publicizes the subject of the protection of tropical forests in Germany by means of its public relations work and environmental education (competition among school children “Schüler schützen Regenwälder”(school children protect the rainforests), teaching materials).
