AREAS OF WORK
Conservation and Sustainability
Aimed at evaluating natural systems, their components and functions, for the design and implementation of plans of sustainable use of wild species, and mitigate the loss of biodiversity through deforestation, desertification, and any other form of significant alteration of natural habitats.
Protected Wild Areas - (ArSiP)
Through the promotion and creation of protected areas, we hope to enlarge the area of protected natural ecosystems, in order to guarantee the conservation of their biodiversity and assure the provision of the goods and services they provide.
Capacity-building, Education and Communication
Capacity-building directed at forming human resources for the rational management of biological diversity, generating links between different authorities of public organisms and national, regional, and international academic institutions. Education and communication aimed at transforming strategies into action, facilitating cooperation and alliances with the industry, based on participative processes, in order to foster comprehension of the importance of conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and its inclusion in the media.
We count on a multidisciplinary team in order to address all issues holistically.
