Córdoba Highlands
Córdoba • Argentina Started in January 2019 Active Conservation, Restoration
As partners of Acción Andina, Fundación Bosquizar seeks to bring back “Tabaquillo” forests, the local name for Polylepis. It is the only forest-forming tree in the mountain ranges of the Córdoba highlands. To restore and protect fully functioning forest ecosystems, Fundación Bosquizar is managing Tabaquillo forest conservation areas, as this species and their associated vegetation reduce soil erosion.
