We are honored to share with you the wonderful news that Fundación Biodiversa Colombia was the winner of Caracol TV Environmental Protection Awards 2017 in the “medium and small business” category! This is a recognition for nearly ten years work to save the forests, the wetlands and the endangered and endemic species that inhabit the Barbacoas area in the Middle Magdalena Valley of Colombia.

In a world dominated by the rush for profits, it is necessary to find spaces to repay nature for all its gifts. For this purpose, it is necessary to treasure the water, the soils, the flora, the fauna, and the biota of our territory. This is why we want to share this award with all the organizations, companies, communities, children, women and men, who live, work, struggle every day and collaborate to conserve the biodiversity and ecosystems of Barbacoas. We express our sincere gratitude to them, since without this support we would not have been able to accomplish these achievements.

This award is a challenge that motivates us to go on and redouble our efforts hand in hand with our strategic allies, to achieve our vision to conserve these ecosystems in harmony with sustainable production and the well-being of its inhabitants, with the certainty that we are working for the greater good, the heritage of our planet, and for future generations.
