LaGeo has also established a wildlife protection park, named Georesguardo, this park promotes local development through the environmental education and recreation of the communities. Many animals have found a home in the wildlife protection park, and young people from the surrounding communities work in the park as rangers. They have had the opportunity to be trained in environmental conservation, animal health care, forest protection and English skills.
