Reserva Natural Sasardi
Between the borders of Panama and Colombia there is Darien’s jungle, one of the great natural treasures of the planet, considered one of the last tropical humid jungles in contact with the sea and one of the youngest geological zones of the planet.
In this Eden, the refuge of 10% of the world's biodiversity, is the Sasardí Natural Reserve, 60 hectares of forest acquired by individuals with the objective of conserving, recovering this natural environment and learning to live by making adequate and sustainable use of the natural resources. About half of this land corresponds to primary forest, the rest is in recovery with natural regeneration and crop areas.
Sasardí Natural Reserve belongs to the Colombian Network of Natural Reserves of Civil Society and the Regional Network of Natural Reserves UNGANDÍ.
This territory is also a meeting of ancestral cultures and ancient histories, a multi-ethnic landscape where indigenous communities (Emberá, Tules, Kuna, etc.), afro-descendants, mestizos and white people coexist.
