One Meter at a Time is a non-profit organization focused on preservation of the tropical rainforest. Our efforts are centered on the belief that education and awareness are a start, but the only way to stop rainforest deforestation is to permanently preserve the land.
The Cuipo Rainforest Preserve
Through its preservation efforts, Cuipo has acquired 13,354,600 square meters (3,300 acres) of rainforest in Panama in Chepo, close to the Darien National Preserve. This land will be gifted to the One Meter at a time Foundation to be preserved in perpetuity. Watch the video to tour the preserve.
Save a Meter
You can save meters2 of the rainforest as an individual or corporation, as a means to offset your carbon footprint. With each meter2 you save, you are given the coordinates to the land and can view your contribution on our interactive map. To save your meter2 visit cuipo.org/saveameter.
