DescriptionFounded in 1987, Provita is a Venezuelan non-profit, non-governmental organization whose mission is to develop innovative socio-environmental solutions to conserve nature. Provita focuses on three areas of work: research, to understand the status and threats to biodiversity; education, to make people part of the solutions; and conservation actions, to directly save species and ecosystems.We have executed hundreds of projects ranging from the recovery of species threatened with extinction, to the implementation of sustainable development alternatives, in collaboration with a strong network of partners from academia, NGOs, research and government institutions. Provita's action has been present in the Caribbean islands, Cordilleras de la Costa and Andes, and the Amazon, and extends to other parts of the world through joint scientific projects with collaborators from other countries, including the Amazonian Network of Georeferenced Socio-Environmental Information (RAISG) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Species Survival and Ecosystem Management Commissions.
