Grupo Piñero expands its Eco-Bahia Foundation to DR

Grupo Piñero launched its Eco-Bahia Foundation in the Dominican Republic. Created in 1999 in Mexico, its objective is to carry out projects for the conservation, maintenance and improvement of natural resources, as well as to raise awareness of the importance of the environment.

To this end, it has implemented programs for the recovery and management of fauna, promotion of native and endemic flora, conservation of marine resources, protection of coral reefs and maintenance of protected areas. In terms of awareness, the Foundation’s activities have been evolving towards educational and environmental awareness actions with local communities, schools, collaborators, clients and owners of tourist and residential Grupo Piñero Amplia se Fundacióndevelopments.

These projects will now be replicated in the Dominican Republic, one of Grupo Piñero’s most important markets, where it has 13 resorts. Specifically, the foundation is already starting to work on the restoration of the whale lookout point at Punta Balandra together with the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (Mimarena) and on the delivery of containers for waste separation in schools in the Samaná Biodiverso project.

In addition, among its objectives for 2023 are the inauguration of composting centers in several locations and cooperation agreements to promote its environmental education initiative and the start of the ecosystem restoration program.

In the words of Grupo Piñero’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Isabel Piñero: “The arrival of the Eco-Bahia Foundation in the Dominican Republic demonstrates our commitment to offering a model of regenerative tourism based on responsibility and sustainability. Absolute respect for the environment is part of our DNA and we hope to continue contributing to the care and conservation of all the natural resources of the destinations in which we operate.”

Grupo Piñero’s resorts in the Dominican Republic are located in a vast area of natural capital with a great diversity of flora and fauna that, with the work of the Foundation, will be protected and conserved.

More than 20 years preserving Biodiversity

Since its beginnings in 1999 with the management of the ‘Program for the Protection and Conservation of Sea Turtles in the Central Coast of Quintana Roo’, the Eco-Bahia Foundation’s projects in Mexico have continued to grow with the objective of increasing the sustainable impact of its actions, releasing more than 110,000 sea turtle hatchlings and attending to more than 1,000 cases of fauna recovery and management.

In addition, the Eco-Bahia Foundation has also created its Environmental Education program, which manages collaborations with local schools, environmental events and scientific research links to raise awareness of the scope and repercussions that human actions can generate in the environment and thereby promote a real change in the habits of all the people who participate in its activities.

With the expansion of the Eco-Bahia Foundation, Grupo Piñero assures that it continues in its mission to inspire change in the sector, promoting a better understanding of the importance of caring for the environment and encouraging the implementation of sustainable practices in the natural capital in which it operates.
