Crónica Ambiental is a communication project specializing in environment, nature conservation, biodiversity, social responsibility and sustainable development, launched in early 2014.
Our main mission is to inform and encourage changes in attitude in Mexican society with respect to these issues.
As a brand and an integrated communication project, Crónica ambiental seeks to become the main Spanish-language referent in environmental journalism, due to the quality and relevance of its content, subject coverage, photography and the quality of its editorial design.
This project was developed by DN3 communication, focusing on the period from 2006 to the present, in publications related to sustainable development, art and cuisine.
Natural Numbers is a series of short films that combine science, photography and animation to explain the value of Mexico’s natural capital and the conflicts involved in its exploitation. It is often difficult to communicate scientific issues to the general public. In an attempt to change this situation, Natural Numbers was created, which offers visually attractive, accessible materials for the general public, with the aim of turning mere spectators into committed citizens.
The founders of Natural Numbers are: Octavio Aburto, Jaime Rojo and Ezequiel Ezcurra, a trio who are passionate about communication, environmental conservation and photography.
Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda
Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda (GESG) leads an alliance of social organizations that work on restoring, preserving and conserving the stunning biodiversity of the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve in the state of Queretaro. It is a pioneer in developing collaborative strategies towards conservation working closely with local communities, thus generating social and economic opportunities for the owners of the land.
Annually, it involves 35,000 rural folk to commit to sanitation, conservation and restoration chores. The GESG is a national and international model in favor of conservation and sustainability, through carbon capture, ecotourism, their holistic management of natural resources and their attention towards the environment.

El Fondo de Conservación El Triunfo, A.C. (FONCET) was created in 2002 to ensure the conservation of the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, located in the central portion of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas, home to one of the last sizable remnants of cloud forest, considered the world’s most endangered ecosystem. As one of the wettest regions in the country, with abundant plant cover, it is the largest collector of freshwater in the region.
FONCET seeks to ensure that the programs and projects carried out in the reserve have the necessary financial resources for their operation by bringing together civil society, the state and federal government, local entrepreneurs, researchers and academics.
The La Venta Research Association comprises a group of Italian researchers who organize and manage geographical and spelunking exploration projects to create new knowledge and obtain important information for science and protect the world’s underground ecosystems. In 2012, they founded the La Venta Karst Studies Center (CEKLAV); Chiapas has more than 300,000 kilometers of karst areas or underground caves, of which only 10 percent have been explored. CEKLAV organizes existing information, conducts outreach and protection activities, and orients public policies on the use and management of caves and their link with the surface environment.
Mexican Seas is an initiative that focuses on communicating the country’s extraordinary marine wealth. In this space, you will find inspiring stories of change, commitment and decision.
Tales of fishing villages, explorers and scientists, who strive to understand more about the species that inhabit Mexican seas and their importance in different ecosystems; accounts of people whose livelihoods depend on the sea and oceans and who fight to preserve them, because they are part of their lives and the future of their families.
The Mexican Seas team consists of photographers, videographers and scientists with a common goal: to tell stories using audiovisual media, which will make it possible to create a link with Mexico’s marine resources and thereby promote their conservation.
The mission of the National Commission for Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity is to promote, coordinate, support and undertake activities aimed at increasing knowledge of biological diversity and ensuring its conservation and sustainable use for the benefit of society. It was conceived as an applied research organization that promotes basic research, compiles and generates information on biodiversity, develops human capacities in the area of informatics on biodiversity and is a public source of information and knowledge for society as a whole.
It creates awareness of our natural capital, serves as a bridge between academia, government and society and encourages the conservation and management of biodiversity to be based on actions taken by the local population, a key player in this process.
