1. To foundation supporters

The Center wishes to thank the Rufford Small Grant Foundation for its $9,000 grant in support of our project "Sustainable harvest and marketing of non-timber forest products (NTPFs) with indigenous communities in the northern Peruvian Amazon (Peru)" that has supported our copal and handicraft work with the Bora native communities in the Ampiyacu River region in 2010. We also thank the Marjorie Grant Whiting Center for Humanity, Arts and the Environment for a $4,000 grant to support this project in 2010 and a $10,000 grant to continue supporting this project from June 2011 through the end of 2012.
