Fundación Misión Gaia develops socio-environmental programs to increase the well-being of local communities and to protect the nature of the Sierra Nevada in Santa Marta.

With its projects, Misión Gaia promotes awareness about man's relationship with the natural environment and it's care.


Facing the COVID-19 crisis, all of our presential events and activities at our social, cultural and educational center CREA, are limited and we are adapting biosafety measures to keep us all safe and healthy. Please see information below & follow us in our social networks to know our current activities and upcoming events .

Volunteering changes lives: inspires, teaches, unites. It is an opportunity for personal and social transformation. Eduardo Galeano used to say "many small people, in small places, doing small things, can change the world."

If you have not yet been a volunteer, we invite you to join a cause that moves your heart to leave a mark. There are many opportunities to volunteer. Do you want to be a volunteer in our organization? contact us

Misión Gaia seeks allies to promote the health and well-being of animals in the Colombian Caribbean. We have spayed and neutered to date more than 2,200 dogs and cats in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

Join our cause to give a better life to stray cats & dogs by donating here or participating as a volunteer.

Change Making Tours

Este proyecto ofrece experiencias de viaje únicas que combinan el turismo responsable y las acciones de cambio, totalmente organizadas y ejecutadas por ONG locales. Éstos son viajes de concienciación cultural y solidaridad, cuyo propósito es ofrecer una experiencia de aprendizaje a través de la interacción social con las comunidades, mientras se apoya directamente su desarrollo sostenible.

Bajo este proyecto enviamos dos voluntarias de Misión Gaia a Italia, y durante los meses de febrero hasta abril hemos tenidos 3 voluntarias de Italia y España.


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 and 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.
