Misión Gaia is a non-profit organization that works to increase the wellbeing of the communities of the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta. Our aim is to develop socio-environmental programs that help address the basic needs of the local communities and promote sustainable use of natural resources. We work in three principal areas: animal health and welfare, sustainable tourism, and environmental education.
Up a winding dirt road, thirty minutes from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, the town of Minca lies nestled in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. It's our home, our workplace, our playground. Together with our community partners, environmental groups and volunteers from around the world, we are creating a brighter future for Minca and the region that surrounds it.
