Challenge

The Andes Mountains of Colombia contain all of the country's major cities and half of its rural population. At the same time, the rugged Andes are home to a wealth of biodiversity, including many species of plants and animals that are found nowhere else on Earth. However, due to the demands of a growing population, the Andes' ecosystems have deteriorated, and many flora and fauna species are threatened or endangered.

Solution

Because the Andean oak forest is so special and rare, it is important to protect more land before developers and loggers cut down the area's regal and moss-laden trees.

Long-Term Impact

Each acre that Natura can add to the cool, moist forests of CachalĂș, which conservationists call "the land of heaven," offers hope for the future of this special ecosystem AND the people of Colombia.
