I want to share with you all that soon will Santurbán paramo declared a natural park. a great victory for the conservation of species and water sources.

The Santurbán moor, a hidden paradise in the mountaintops Santandereanas, which offers a wide variety of biodiversity, which has 47 lakes, more than 457 species of plants, over 17 species between amphibians and reptiles, over 201 species wild birds and has more than 58 species of mammals. It is a sanctuary that covers a vast expanse of land enigmatic, which for hikers and nature lovers is like finding a portal to an unknown dimension, but fills many natural attractions

El tema de los incendios y el impacto que tienen sobre los paisajes paramunos, ya que estos son considerados como uno de los agentes más impactantes y agresivos en procesos de degradación, pérdida de diversidad y disminución de los servicios ecosistémicos que recibimos de los páramos.

The biological richness that houses the moor is unique because most of its species have evolved complex adaptations to live under extreme climatic conditions of this ecosystem mechanisms to hold water against the wind and maintain a proper temperature make the existence of life in the high altitudes where they located the moors which are the main source of non-renewable water resource.

no to mining..
