Green Orinoco iguana.Conservation Programs
We are dedicated to the conservation of native tree species and their propagation. This requires the collection of seeds of at-risk tropical trees and and their propagation.

Conservation of native tree species is important for the preservation of endangered animals, birds and fish. It expands habitat and provides food and shelter for wildlife adapted to a specific niche in the inundation forest. This unique eco-system is visited by numerous migratory birds from North America. The natural reserve provides shelter for both flora and fauna.
University of Alberta researchers
