Tourism suporting conservation


The importance of our work to establish the Madidi Mosaic has been recognized by various organizations. The following are some examples:

  • 1994-95 France 3 does a one hour documentary, The Forest of the Tacanas, showing the efforts made by Eco Bolivia Foundation and culminating with the signing of the park decree.
  • 1995 Rosa Maria Ruiz, director of Eco Bolivia Foundation, is named Ashoka fellow.
  • 1998 The National Geographic Society asks Rosa Maria Ruiz to prepare and lead their writers, photographers, and video team for coverage of Madidi. The work culminates the year 2000 with a cover story in their magazine, a video documentary, an internet site, and a series of radio interviews through satellite networks
  • 2000 the National Wildlife Federation awards Rosa Maria Ruiz the international conservation prize.
