Our work

Active participation in the effective management of protected natural areas of high conservation value.

We endorse the management of protected natural areas, promoting sustainable initiatives that improve the livelihoods of local residents through conservation and management of biological diversity. We also drive the identification and categorization of protected natural areas and conservation priority sites using instruments such as master plans, financial sustainability plans, land use plans, etc., necessary for effective sustainable management. We seek to reduce direct and indirect negative impacts by building capacities for the sustainable use of natural resources. We constantly train government employees on environmental issues, as well as people involved in a variety of social groups, in charge of managing protected spaces.

Enhancing the value of Peruvian biodiversity through economic initiatives based on sustainable management of natural resources.

We promote and implement environmentally friendly economic initiatives that facilitate responsible and competitive management of natural resource use. We also articulate sustainably managed products toward specific markets in order to generate better social and economic conditions for local residents in our areas of work. This has proven that conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity go hand in hand and are key elements for generating tangible benefits for local populations.

The most noteworthy resources in our areas of work include:

Deploying environmental culture and sustainable development in Peruvian society and government.

We develop environmental education programs geared toward promoting knowledge of local biological diversity and its sustainable use, targeting children. We have been promoting the “Dream 2” educational program in rural schools in Tumbes, Oxapampa and Ancash, generating an environmental conscience in school age children.

We also work to encourage the active and informed participation of residents on environmental topics. We accomplish this by involving local populations so that they become change agents and the main beneficiaries of improved environmental and social conditions in their communities. We work with regional and local governments, a variety of government agencies as well as with civil society organizations to propel the formation of viable policies that incorporate environmental management tools in order to ensure the appropriate use of natural resources and preserve environmental integrity.
