Towards biodiversity initiatives
We worked with the Tauramena Mayor’s Office
and the Orinoquia Biodiversa Foundation (FOB) on a study to classify the biodiversity of different ecosystems in Tauramena in Colombia’s Casanare department, which range from mountain forests to flood plains and wetlands. The project makes a significant contribution to decision-making processes about the recovery and sustainable use of natural resources in the region. As a result of this study, we published the Tauramena Natural catalog of local animal and plant life, which describes priority conservation species based on their ecological importance and levels of endemism, threats and vulnerability.
Our environmental investment projects in Colombia include the identification, purchase and donation of protected areas. They include the La Esmeralda Nature Preserve, classified as a perpetual conservation area due to its unique animal and plant life, and the Chingaza National Natural Park, an area of great biodiversity, particularly vulnerable due to private sector agriculture, livestock, hunting and the extraction of high value timber. The recovery of these areas is strategic for biological connectivity between ecosystems in areas of high environmental importance.
The Biodiversity and Development for Putumayo program is an initiative created in 2017 by ANDI (the National Business Association of Colombia) that focuses on integrating biodiversity into private sector operations, promoting the exchange of experiences and helping to improve the private sector’s environmental performance. GeoPark participates in the Biodiversity and Development for Putumayo program through its La Nueva Amerisur subsidiary, in association with National Natural Parks (PNN), the Alexandre Von Humboldt Institute, Corpoamazonia, the SINCHI Institute and the Biodiversity Information System.
