ABOUT US


We are a company dedicated to the management, conservation, and protection of biodiversity. Our first reserve is located in the tropical rainforest of Magdalena Medio, Colombia. We create strategies to preserve life, stop deforestation and increase biodiversity in the areas we directly protect.

We are a channel between citizens, private companies, and the State towards preserving natural ecosystems. For this reason, we act as entrepreneurs of conscience, being an efficient and safe bridge where we can all participate directly and indirectly in the protection and restoration of the environment. Our philosophy stems from the importance of small acts. We integrate the community in favor of nature and achieve results that bring us closer to a sustainable life day after day.

ONE METER MATTERS1 / 2

At O2 Reserve, we are conscious beings who love and respect the land. Our mission is based on generosity: the generosity of existing in favor of everything and everyone, giving more than we take, and putting creativity at the service of good and balance.

In the middle Magdalena we found the opportunity to start this project of conscience. This sanctuary, which apart from being a shelter for countless forms of life, also provides us with a strategic position, since it is part of the most critical points of the so-called jaguar corridor. We firmly believe that each meter matters, only in 1 km² of forest up to 256 species of trees have been found, they are more forest species than there are in the entire North American continent. That is why its protection is so important, to give nature a place where it can flourish in peace and that the animals that inhabit it can be free.

HOW DO WE OPERATE?2 / 2

In accordance with the needs and characteristics of the areas to be protected, we decided that the ideal way is to tax the land as a Natural Reserve of Civil Society. With this, the land is protected and allows us to economically manage its meters, and establish different commercial and communication strategies with the public and private sectors.

By doing this, we encourage the increase of fauna and flora; We generate an extra income to the owner of the land that is being conserved, in addition, we offer society the possibility of offsetting its environmental footprint through conservation. Thus achieving a circular commercial dynamic, which benefits natural persons, legal entities, communities and the state, since, with this, we comply with several sustainable development objectives.

KNOWING, UNDERSTANDING, PROTECTING, AND DISCLOSING THE FUNCTIONING OF OUR FORESTS LEADS US TOWARDS A FUTURE FULL OF HOPE FOR US AND FUTURE GENERATIONS.


In recent years, Colombia has experienced a significant loss of forest cover, mainly due to deforestation driven by the extraction of raw materials (32,5%), migratory agriculture (62,9%), forestry (4,2%), urbanization (0,2%), and forest fires (0,2%). Only in the period 2009 - 2019, approximately 2.67 million hectares of forest were lost in the country.
