We are a Colombian civil society organization, which since 1989 has worked hand in hand with the people for the conservation of birds and their habitats. We understand that conservation and sustainable development are fundamental pillars in the search for a better quality of life for the population.
“Being born in the field, birds were always close to me, but it was only until I began to admire them that I understood their value and the importance they have for our humanity.”
Jose Jarvi Bazán – Colombian farmer

The awe-inspiring phenomenon of migration is not just coastal – in the Mid- continental Americas Flyway, many species fly in their millions between North and South America, encountering numerous challenges along the way.
