Through the development of diverse tools, products and programs, Fundación ProAves works to generate strategies of environmental education with the intention of increase knowledge, sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity in our country, with a special emphasis into birds.
ProAves understands the significance of working in cooperation with the population living in the outskirts of the reserves, since this association guarantees the continuity end effectiveness of field work, and with their valuable support, ProAves can ensure a complete and structured work. In the same way, the intervention in areas where there is no constant work being carried out, is highly important for the general care of the environment, ensuring the permanence of birds in Colombia and, generally, of the world.
Within the area of environmental education, Fundación ProAves develops different programs in order to create a process of sensibility within the population.

Parrot Bus: The Parrot Bus is a mobile classroom of environmental education that drives along the entire country in order to generate conscience among the entire population with knowledge, conservation and sustainable use of the biodiversity of our country, using informational panels, didactic games, workshops, discussions and videos.
