The Foundation for the Conservation of Natural Resources (Fundación Natura) was created in 1991 to contribute to the protection and integrated management of river basins prioritized by their environmental and economic assessment, participatory processes and fund management. This is accomplished through several modalities of administration: comprehensive (administration of an endowment and two debt-for-nature swaps, funding NGO projects with technical and financial support), intermediate (sinking funds and project implementation), basic (sinking funds). It also supports Green Coalitions which are alliances with the private sector and grants for community based organizations and pro-bono (administration of sinking funds for informal community organizations).
Fundación Natura works in protected areas and buffer zones, wetlands, forests of all kinds and farms along the Panamanian territory.
