GRUPO ECOLOGICO SIERRA GORDA - SIERRA GORDA ECOLOGICAL GROUP
Grupo Ecologico Sierra Gorda is an alliance of eight organizations devoted to protecting the nature, communities, and cultural history of the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, the most ecologically diverse biosphere reserve in Mexico, through sustainable development and business, conservation, and education.
Bosque Sustenable, a member organization of the Ecological Group for the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, works with private landowners within the Reserve to reforest their degraded lands with native trees. Landowners are compensated for planting and caring for trees, and managing their reforestations for optimum growth and carbon sequestration. Local forestry experts accompany the landowners every step of the way, providing technical training and expertise, and ensuring successful reforestations that meet carbon sequestration requirements. The sale of Sierra Gorda Offsets helps
sustain biodiversity in the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve's million acres by funding sustainable activities for its 100,000 residents that both further conservation and combat rural poverty.
