About Us

Fundación Orinoquía!

Fundación Orinoquía is a non-profit institution based in Puerto Carreño, Vichada, Colombia.

Our mission is to develop social and environmental programs that contribute to the knowledge, conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity of the Colombian Orinoco region, to learn to live with the environment avoiding damage and recover damages, networking with the various governmental and non-governmental actors of the region in order to build together action plans that contribute to the harmonious development of this region.

We have worked with the Carreño community in sewage systems treatment, botany workshops, environmental campaigns focused on solid waste management, biotechnology models from recycled materials with school students and the implementation of programs of fish farming as alternative sources of employment.
