The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has highlighted our Executive Director, Sara Inés Lara, as one of the women making history in bird conservation in the Americas.

Sara is the Executive director of both ProAves and Women for Conservation,  which have participated in several projects supported by the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) program. The project “Protecting a crucial gateway to South America for neotropical migrants” has been one of the most successful and rewarding for us. With this project, we protect birds such as the Cerulean Warbler, Golden-winged Warbler, and Canada Warbler in our ProAves El Dorado Reserve.  Support from USFWS has allowed ProAves to conserve a total of 126 different migratory species across 27 nature reserves.  Women for Conservation catalyzes community conservation projects in rural communities surrounding ProAves Reserves.  

Women for Conservation and ProAves is proud to be led and supported by many incredible women conservation leaders. We believe in the power of grassroots conservation initiatives to protect and care for the wildlife and flora of our planet.
