Summary

The Colorado River rises in the Rocky Mountains in the United States and reaches the Gulf of California in Mexico. One hundred twenty years ago, the river flowed through 600 000 acres of the riparian corridor. Today, it has been reduced to 3% of what it was. We promote its restoration to recover the natural and ecological conditions like clean air, water, refuge, and food provision for wildlife and, of course, for the communities around the river.

Challenge

More than 120 years ago the Colorado River Delta was flowing through 600 000 acres of the riparian corridor. Today, the river has been reduced to 3% of what it was before, which is why the Restoration initiative arose to recover the natural and ecological conditions through ecological restoration projects, such as Miguel Aleman Restoration Site located in the border between Mexicali, Baja California and Arizona, U.S.A.

Solution

Restoration projects such Miguel Aleman in Baja California ensure to keep environmental services for the communities and re-build the refuge of thousands of migratory, resident birds, and wildlife that depends on the site. Conservation efforts also involve the community through environmental education workshops so they get involved in reforestation, workshops, and science activities to empower them about its relationship with nature.

Long-Term Impact

Due to ecosystem services, the restoration initiative of the Colorado River Delta benefits more than 200,000 inhabitants in Mexico. The project will involve every year to 1,500 volunteers from communities around the Miguel Aleman Restoration Site who will be empowered about their relationship with nature by rethinking and experiencing their connection with it, recognizing how restoration projects like this one contribute to their quality of life.
