“For us it is a great honor to represent the values of our country, thanks to the great effort of consolidating conservation as our flag for a better world. Being the first nongovernmental organization working on environmental issues to receive such licensing is a great pride, “said Pablo Elizondo, executive director of CRBO.

The Organization leads important conservation and research processes, including the first payment program for bird-based environmental services, as well as 15 permanent monitoring stations and multiple lines of research.
