    Fundación ProAves was born in 1998 with the dream of a group of conservationists to save the Yellow-eared Parrot from extinction in Colombia. Thanks to its success in Parrot conservation, ProAves was legally established in 2001 in Jardín, Antioquia, and decided to expand its focus to study and conserve other globally threatened species according to the IUCN, especially birds and amphibians throughout Colombia, for means of research, strategic conservation actions and work with the community.

    ProAves currently has 28 Nature Reserves at strategic points throughout the country to protect in perpetuity the habitat of different species with some degree of threat of extinction. One is dedicated to the conservation of migratory species, 2 to the conservation of amphibians, 3 to the conservation of threatened mammals and the others to the conservation of birds.

    The passion and commitment to conservation by the ProAves family is nurtured by alliances and collaboration with different organizations, groups and citizens at the local and regional level with whom we work for the protection of biodiversity. It is very gratifying to find that Colombians feel a great passion for nature and to know that ProAves has always found open doors in all the communities with which it has worked.
