In the last hour today a very interesting chat with Mario Urriola who has the FUNDACION BIODIVERSIDAD TROPICAL PANAMÁ which is a non-profit non-governmental Panamanian organization that dates back to 2001, its mission is to promote the conservation of fauna and flora, in order to develop biodiversity conservation, education and research projects nationally. The increase in deforestation, environmental pollution, destruction and loss of natural habitat, decreases the populations of birds, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, freshwater fish, ophidian and scorpions. Accidents in recent years, due to the increase in the human population and the consequent effects show the need to develop projects aimed at working together to coexist and protect nature. The members of the foundation, students and volunteers have been working and giving talks and training on wildlife management, environmental education, conservation, coexistence with amphibians, reptiles and other species of fauna, in different communities nationwide, with which it must stimulate the due measure for the protection and conservation of natural resources in a sustainable way. On the other hand, the implementation of the knowledge and experience acquired, guarantees the excellent functioning of the projects with the responsibility, safety and seriousness that has always characterized us and that the local communities are participants and the main beneficiaries of the values of Fauna and Wild flora.”
Today though we are concentrating on the snake which is Mario’s passion.
