University training and research in our reserves
ProAves has 5 reserves open to the public and placed in several of the most important maintained ecosystems in Colombia.
These reserves have excellent accommodation, meeting rooms, canteens, electricity, mobile communication and trails; besides it is also possible to observe species of several orders in different degrees of threat, allowing researchers, academia and visitors to increase logistically knowledge of biodiversity in the environment as a formative experience.
It is a target for ProAves to make available and provide the best conditions for the academic community to develop university practices and field research for undergraduate work, master’s or doctoral degrees, with subsidized entry costs and all-risk insurance.
We want this opportunity to be the beginning of investigations of flora and fauna that contribute to the knowledge of our biodiversity and academic practices that facilitate the training of future professionals.
