Proceeds will go to Para La Naturaleza, an organization that protects lands of high ecological value. They are dedicated to creating a sustainable future for la isla where its children can grow up in habitable cities, swim in the crystal-clear waters of their rivers and feed themselves off the land. They encourage people to take responsibility for all our natural resources while pushing forward public policy for their protection. With more that forty-three years working together with other organizations for the protection of nature, they have identified a common goal for every person committed to conservation.
