Our mission is to raise awareness, build networks, and support social and economic development for the conservation and long-term sustainability of the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, Mexico.
The Sierra Gorda is a dynamic bioregion along the Eastern Sierra Madre mountains in Central Mexico whose people organized a civil movement to save the biodiversity and culture of these mountains.
Viva Sierra Gorda is an advocacy group that seeks to raise awareness and participation from concerned global citizens, to bring to life the daily work and generosity of the highlander community to rescue their homelands and support innovation in all sectors and protect Mother Nature and bioregional security.
VSG is a unique voice and ally for overcoming the challenges facing rural poverty communities and the valuable nature and beauty of the Sierra Gorda mountains in central Mexico.
To make the Sierra Gorda (Mexico) bio-region and the on-going local conservation movement a top priority on a global scale and provide outlets to the regional products through the San Francisco Bay Area.
