The environment of Zuleta is beautiful, rural and mostly unspoilt and we want to keep it that way.  The Galo Plaza Lasso Foundation’s projects all include some environmental component, to a greater or lesser extent, to ensure that we are working towards truly sustainable development.

Environmental conservation is a direct objective of some projects, for example our condor conservation program.  Other projects, such as the library, may not have the environment as their main focus, but still ensure that, for example, local children learn about their environment and how to care for it.
