    We are an NGO working for the conservation of the environment. In particular we believe the environmental education being a powerful weapon against disrespectful actions that harm the environment.
    We know that teaching certain values of respect, protection and even admiration for nature can sensitize people and even change behaviors that destroy our natural environment. Working with the smallest we can help make a big difference in the future of communities and their environment.

Trabajando con los más pequeños podemos ayudar a producir un gran cambio en el futuro de las comunidades y su entorno.
