    This organisation is Conservation International. Harrison Ford is the patron of it. My sister just bought 3 acres for $45.00 off them and is $15.00 for one acre and $75.00 for 5 acres. Is amazing. $15.00 is like £9.50 for us in England and one acre is equal to 16 tennis courts or a football (soccer pitch) go do it!

      This seems extremely cheap. How many acres in total are being bought and where exactly? And how is it protected after it is bought
