The vision for the Forest is to further develop it as an experiential learning center where community members, research institutions, graduate students and the public at large can enjoy forest experiences tailored to their expectations and unique needs.
Over the years, Portal has sourced and grown wide variety of Herbs Spices and Aromatic Plants for the production of Essential Oils Spices and Fragrances for the Global Flavors Fragrance and Essential Oil Industry.
Portal Forest has established training modules to facilitate experiential learning of our Landscape Forest Restoration. Courses extend to all parties interested in learning about sustainable forestry and all aspects of our private forest management.
The premise of the study was simple — in order to effectively act against deforestation within their territories, Indigenous communities first must be able to quickly detect it. Satellites offered a solution. Orbiting and imaging the Earth constantly, they can show changes in forest cover between images on tiny scales. These images are used to build GLAD alerts, updated weekly on the GFW platform to show likely instances of deforestation, as well as the weekly alerts produced by Peru’s Ministry of the Environment
Loreto, Peru — A forest monitor from the Indigenous community of Vista Hermosa checks her smartphone. A satellite map showing the forest around her pops up. Her community’s territory is outlined and pink pixels—deforestation alerts—are visible within the boundaries. She and her fellow forest monitors react quickly, patrolling to the alert to confirm the deforestation. Finding the stumps and area cleared, they snap some photos and record their observations, and return to their community to relay the information and decide what to do next.
