About David Rivera Ospina

I am a biologist by profession, graduated from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in 1991. I have written several large format books: "The Moors (Páramos) in Colombia", "The Orinoco of Colombia ", "The Highlands of Colombia" and "The Amazon of Colombia".

I hope over time to be a center for education and permaculture living stage of learning and contributing to the conservation of tropical dry forest in the municipality of Melgar, Tolima Department
