Fundación Natura
Fundación Natura (FN) is a non-governmental organization based in Bogotá. Fundación Natura was created in 1983 for the purposes of: contributing towards the conservation of close to 10 percent of the planet's diversity (as calculated for Colombia); searching for sustainable alternatives for natural resource use in areas of the highest biodiversity; and, finding alternatives for preserving biological wealth through the creation of sources of income and social welfare. The Foundation is responsible for project implementation at three of the four Colombian Parks in Peril sites, including Chingaza National Park.
