Our Projects

 We are focused on three main areas

Research and Innovation

Mexico is a Megadiverse country characterized by unparalleled natural beauty, biodiversity but too large-scale human impacts. As a result, Mexico has many rare and threatened species that need our attention and help. It is essential in this region to manage biodiversity in the remaining habitats and restore degraded lands to enhance biodiversity.

 

Our field station scientists collaborate with faculty and graduate students from local and international universities conducting research related to rare species ecology and recovery, ecosystem integrity, conservation planning and ecological restoration. Sustainable agro-ecosystems, permaculture, tissue culture and plant propogation are also researched with the aim of creating sustainable agricultural systems. The workshop and innovation laboratory will focus on creating unique solutions to local and global challenges.

Eco-Education and Leadership

 

We offer a multifaceted approach to eco-education where students of all ages and backgrounds will learn about local ecology and environmental issues and will be challenged to find unique ways to restore balance and health to their local area. All students will be empowered to share the skills they learn at the centre with their communities to create benefit for all.

Habitat Restoration and Carbon Sequestration

Habitat destruction is the main cause of species loss worldwide. But it does not stop there. These losses impact humanity as well. Some areas of the world are so degraded that crops will not grow, water does not stay on the land and life is hard in these areas. By healing the land we not only benefit ecosystems but also all that need healthy ecosystems to survive, ourselves included. Thanks to science of restoration ecology we have the tools and knowledge that enables us to repair and recreate damaged ecosystems.

 

One of the most important projects to restore soils is biochar. The right forest biomass management, carbon drawdown, drought resiliency, and nitrogen conservation are just a few benefits.

fTransforming forest biomass into biochar and then using it to improve the long-term health of degraded farmland soils can improve water conservation and sequester a significant amount of carbon safely and economically.
