Summary

El Tambor is a small massif in the Venezuelan Andes covered by cloud forests, harboring endemic & endangered species; yet, livelihood relies on farming and livestock. Thus, El Tambor is a complex socio-ecological system wherein deforestation & improper land use drive habitat degradation and loss, altering the water cycle that linked to climate change, pollutants, & pests will drive many species to extinction. Our goal: work with stakeholders to carry out effective education & restoration actions

Challenge

El Tambor is considered a "continental island" with most ecosystems and species at risk due to impact of cattle and farming which cause forest degradation and fragmentation leading to wildlife habitat loss and disruption of the water cycle, as the forest captures water from rain and cloudiness that sustain springs and wetlands. Many stakeholders are not aware that if they do not conserve and recover the habitats around and within their lands, the place will become inhabitable even for them.

Solution

We work with stakeholders to conserve and recover the ecosystems through simple but impacting conservation, restoration, and management actions such as planting native tree species and sparing lands for preservation and recovery. Through education, co-learning, and conservation networks we help communities to internalize the crucial need of ensuring the ecosystems functions and conserving El Tambors amazing biodiversity, so improving their life quality.

Long-Term Impact

This is a long term project. We expect persuade stakeholders on the need of ensuring natural ecosystems functionality and protect their amazing biodiversity in El Tambor. People will be able to execute effective conservation actions such as cattle exclusion, active (mixed plantations) and passive restoration as well as conforming conservation networks allowing them act as divulgating and multiplier agents for carrying out actions based on an ongoing conservation and restoration plan.
