Threats to the health of our forest ecosystems

Our forest and its inhabitants are dying from over-farming and habitat destruction. Developers plunder forest life sanctuaries with impunity, and illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) hunting goes unchecked in the rainforests far from public scrutiny.
READ MORE links to Illegal operations plunder forest sanctuaries with impunity, within the rainforest, far from the eyes of international authorities and public scrutiny, the issue is even worse. International laws and agreements exist to protect forest wildlife and forest habitats, but they can be difficult to enforce because of lack of political will, insufficient economic resources, or transnational boundaries that blur jurisdiction. Where a law enforcement vacuum exists, House On Fire acts to fill that void.

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) deforestation

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) deforestation is a global problem that threatens the health of forest ecosystems leading to global warming. The problem is particularly acute for developing nations that often lack the resources to enforce local laws, which is why House On Fire works with governments like Costa Rica to make a real difference for the future of our forests.

Protect Forest Habitat

Deforestation is eliminating our forest, creating a devastating impact on forest ecosystems worldwide. Human-driven and natural loss of trees – deforestation – affects wildlife, ecosystems, weather patterns, and even the climate. The numbers are grim, but many conservationists see reasons for hope. A movement is underway to preserve existing forest ecosystems and restore lost tree cover. Deforestation, loss of ecosystems are one of biggest threats our wildlife faces. It’s also a serious health risk for humans.

Reforestation Projects

House On Fire Nature Reserve is located on the Central Pacific of Costa Rica. The 174 acre property is designed to have an organic farm, water well, solar power, biological station for 30 students, water treatment plant, biodigester and much more. All showcasing sustainable construction throughout. Including a small 6 home community taking care of a forest and proving endemic species can be brought back.
