Conservation Effort

     The Foundation was created in order to preserve natural resources, especially the aquifer system. Two of FUDEBIOL’s most important tributaries are La Pizota and La Catarata streams. The Pizota is the main one, since it is where the Quebradas River is born. Apart from these tributaries, it has a primary and secondary forest, since this was a farm where the cabuya was planted (Monje, 2012).
