2019 was the third most devastating year in terms of deforestation in the last 20 years. About 38,000 km2 were destroyed last year, the equivalent of a football field every 6 seconds*.
Forests occupy less than 1/3 of the planet’s surface, but are home to more than 80% of animals, plants and insects. They also serve as a source of livelihood for more than 1/4 of the world’s population.
The balance of nature has been altered by human activities such as deforestation, invasion of wildlife habitats or intensive-invasive agriculture. To protect the biodiversity on which we all depend, it is now that we have to act!
At Fundación Impulso Verde Colombia we are optimistic and therefore we carry out projects that protect nature and that sensitize humans. We truly believe that we can create consciousness and give back to nature what it has given us.
You can also act by supporting our projects!

- Produce native trees
