Programs

ECOSYSTEM AND LANDSCAPE RESTORATION PROGRAM

This program aims to recover degraded areas to initiate functional recovery of ecosystems, generating connectivity between patches of forests and guarantee refuge for tropical biodiversity. The objective of this program is to recover ecosystem services for climate regulation, carbon sequestration and recovery of water recharge zones. This is intended to contribute to the global goals of restoration and reduce the effects of climate change and generate human well-being in rural communities and ensure the conservation of tropical forests.

PARTICIPATORY BIODIVERSITY MONITORING PROGRAM

This program aims to generate information on ecological aspects and distribution data of the main threatened species in areas with greater forest cover in El Salvador with the help of forest owners, community leaders, and indigenous leaders. All the information collected helps us to establish guidelines for the conservation of ecosystems using umbrella species, providing information to decision makers for the management and conservation of biodiversity in El Salvador and the Central American region.

This program aims to support students and early researchers who work with issues related to current conservation problems in the country and the Central American region.
