Purpose of Organization:

Dissemination of the concept of sustainable development, as a non for profit organization through management and consulting environmental services, environmental education, publications, and social and environmental conflict resolution.

Experience:

As a non-for-profit environmental management and consulting services provider, Bioparque has attended successfully in these eleven years, cases in the following sectors always with the participation of local communities: Urban development, ecotouristic, agribusiness, oil and gas, ports, cement industry. In all of the cases the project's representatives changed their perception about the environment and the communities associated; and the local communities transformed their lives out of a synergic relationship with the project in their area of influence. Local communities were either peasants, indigenous or afrodescendants. Both have recognized the role of Bioparque in the cases attended.
It has published during 8 years the environmental magazine Catorce6. During the last 3 years has managed the ecotouristic services of the Isla de Salamanca National Park with local communities.
