Who are We

Introduction

Conservación de Suelos

The Lower Rio Mira Valley is characterized by the presence of very steep hillsides, soils susceptible to erosion caused by the existence of strong rains and inadequate cultural practices, low productivity and high migration.

In this context, a proposal is necessary to counteract this situation with an eye to improve the standard of living for local farmers.

About Us

Fundación Golondrinas is a non-governmental non-profit organization created via Ministerial Agreement # 213 on June 26, 1996- MAG/INEFAN.

Fundacion Golondrinas proposes management alternatives in the conservation of natural resources in the Lower Rio Mira Valley, taking technological and social realities into consideration.

In 1997, the foundation received the declaration of Cerro Golondrinas Protected Forest Reserve for an area that conserves biodiversity and backs activities that protect the cloud forest.

Our objectives are:

  • Management and recuperation of eroded soils in the Lower Rio Mira Valley.
  • Environmental education.
