Ladies Day at The Berrics
October 27, 2018
10TH ANNUAL LADIES DAY @THE BERRICS
Be Part of the Solution and Make-a-Difference!
Join us at Ladies Day, October 27th from 10 AM – 6 PM
Our Humanitarian Outreach Goal: $10,000 usd
During the international tour, we will also be teaming-up with Techo por Ecuador to build 3 homes and a community garden for families in need. We will also be enaging youth and adults of visiting communities to help clean their local parks and forest by hosting environmental clean-up events.
For every $2,500usd raised, Poseiden Foundation community supporters and their athletes, help Techo’s Mission for the Eradication of Poverty construct 1/4 of a home and build community garden in various rural areas in Ecuador. A portion will also go towards an Ecuadorian nonprofit that is dedicated to protecting Ecuador’s biodiversity and educationing local children about the importance of protecting our planet!
By learning about the environmental impact and the biodiversity Ecuador offers to our planet we can better understand the footprint we leave. Poseiden Foundation will be working with professional Eco-Tourism Guides and speaking with Environmental Advocate and Arborist Tomas Espinosa about Ecuador’s rapid change in ecology and how it’s endangering their biodiversity and the worlds.

“Ecuador is the most biodiverse country on earth!” – Biodiversity Group “[It is] home to millions of species of plants, birds, insects and mammals.” – Smithsonian Magazine “[Their] Tropical ecosystems are the most biodiverse on earth, and Ecuador exemplifies this diversity. Roughly 8% of amphibian species, 5% of reptile species, 8% of mammal species, and 16% of bird species in the world are found in this diminutive country, which comprises only 0.2% of the world’s land area.”- Biodiversity Group “Now 14 percent of [Ecuador] has been concessioned to mining interests. This includes a million hectares of indigenous land, half of all the territories of the Shuar in the Amazon and three-quarters of the territory of the Awa in the Andes.” – The Ecologist “In the last year 2018, the Ecuadorean government has quietly granted mining concessions to over 1.7 million hectares (4.25 million acres) of forest reserves and indigenous territories. These were awarded to transnational corporations in closed-door deals without public knowledge or consent.” –Global Research
