Thanks to the support of American Bird Conservancy in 2006, ProAves acquired a 15 ha property close to the Cerulean Warbler Bird Reserve that containing mostly coffee and coffee production machinery. The coffee aims to help with reserve sustainability and as serve as a “model” for bird-friendly production, especially for the Cerulean Warbler.
Since 2006, ProAves and EcoTurs Colombia have invested significant resources to improve production and quality of bird habitat. We are delighted to receive the certification from the Sustainable Agriculture Network of Rainforest Alliance, and certified by the Sustainable coffee group of Santander (Grupo Cafés Sostenibles de Santander) and the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia.
The Cerulean Warbler Bird Reserve contributes to the conservation of many threatened Oak forest dependent species in the Serranía de los Yariguíes, as well as many threatened migrant birds.
