Who we are

From beautiful studies in our very diverse birds, to rappelling waterfalls, or mountain biking.

The Paria Springs Project is a venture that seeks to show that man can earn a respectable living while caring for the natural environment and the people around us. It is the result of several years of effort of its founding members who all share a deep interest in conservation and a love for our local culture. While we all wish to earn financial rewards from the Paria Springs Project, this is not the measure of success. The final measure of success is that we conserve our natural heritage and our culture while generating financial returns.
|The Paria Springs Project subscribes to The Ecotourism Society's definition of ecotourism. The Ecotourism Society says "Ecotourism is responsible travel to natural areas which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of the local people."|
