Grupo Ecologico Sierra Gorda I.A.P.

Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda I.A.P. (GESGIAP) was founded in 1987 by a group of local inhabitants of the Sierra Gorda of Querétaro, in of the most eco-diverse and poorest areas of Mexico. The organization has proved that a conservation, biodiversity protection and sustainable development project can be successful when it is based on a social strategy that engages society and can count on the support of an alliance with the government and the private sector, as well as the ability to achieve measurable improvement.
