Piedmont plains of Casanare "Mesa de San Pedro" Habitat Bank
Conservation, life and well-being
Within the foothills of the mountain range, towards the Orinoquí of Colombia,the Habitat Bank Piedmonte llanero del Casanare "Mesa de San Pedro" is located.
In the municipality of Sabanalaga, to the west of the department, this commitment to preservation and restoration seeks to protect more than 255 hectares covering ecosystems of humid foothill forest, basal floodplain gallery forest.
The Habitat Bank has undergone afforestation processes to increase forest cover and favor succession processes that contribute to the protection of riverbeds and, in addition, to the biodiversity of the area.
If your work, project or activity is located in any of the blue areas of the maps that appear on the side, you can comply with your environmental obligations derived from mandatory investments of no less than 1% or biodiversity loss offsets, both mandatory and voluntary, in this Habitat Bank.

of the area
The area where the project is carried out has forest cover and semi-natural areas in good condition and with good expansion potential to increase connectivity between forest patches in the area.
In addition, thanks to the establishment of theHabitat Bank, ecosystem services and biodiversity will benefit.
This area is even considered highly important for migratory bird species that seek food and shelter here.The fauna and flora will be increased since the territory has changed agricultural practices for processes of ecological restoration, preservation and conservation of nature.
Species of conservation importance
Of the 130 registered bird species, 24 of interest for conservation were registered since they are in some category of threat. Among these are the White-breasted Toucan (Ramphastos tucanus) which is in a vulnerable state (VU) and the Chestnut-tailed Currow (Mitu tomentosum) in near threatened (NT) status.
Regarding mammals, 12 species of non-flying mammals of great ecological importance were recorded due to the roles they play within the ecosystem, where 3 species of monkeys stand out:squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus), red howler monkey (Alouatta seniculus) and corn monkey (Sapajus apella) that give evidence of the good state of the ecosystem and for the conservation of the forest due to its characteristics as seed dispersers.
