Natural and Cultural Heritage
Colombia hosts more than 6,600 species of animals and 51,220 species of plants so it’s essential for us to protect it as much as we can. That's why, we respect and promote the conservation of natural heritage. We comply with Law 17 of the 1981 "Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora" agreement, signed March 3, 1973 in Washington, D.C. We also comply with Law 1333 of 2009 that established the environmental sanctioning procedure.
We respect and promote the preservation of our cultural heritage in accordance with Law 1185 of 2008, which safeguards, protects, recovers, conserves, sustains and educates people about a country's cultural heritage. We also support the prevention and rejection of illicit trafficking of cultural properties in accordance with Law 63 of 1986, which approves the "agreement of measures to be taken to prohibit and prevent the import, export and transfer of illicit cultural goods,” signed in Paris November 17, 1970.
