Birding Santa Marta S.A.S. through the tourism activity promotes the conservation of protected areas and natural reserves, giving participation to the local communities, stimulating the sustainability of the production processes friendly to the environment.
Birding Santa Marta S.A.S. to design more sustainable tourism strategies links members of the local communities where it operates in the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta and the peninsula of La Guajira, to obtain money from tourism and thus support the sustainable economic development of these communities.
Another of the pillars of the operation of Birding Santa Marta S.A.S are the agreements with specialized foundations to study birds. We send our guides to assist and thus contribute to research, to generate knowledge of these birds so that government entities be able to take conservation decisions against these species. This work is already being carried out with threatened, endemic and migratory bird species in the La Guajira peninsula and in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
We gave lectures on the conservation of birds and on the importance of birds in the ecosystem to the children of the Bellavista School. Many of our customers interact with these children and some of them make donations to do arrangements at school, purchase books, first aid kit or other things that are needed.
We have a seed of 12 young people interested in learning about bird watching, investing in training, field trips, material, etc. Many of these young people already work as guides in our company.
