Luis Bustamante

Luis Bustamante has dedicated the last 15 years of his life to the protection of nature and the environment in Mexico.

In 1990, he formed the Mexican Association of NGOs for the Defense of the Pacific Coast, and he has brought together Mexico's most important NGOs to form the Committee for the Defense of The Chimalapas, the last tropical rainforest whose existence was threatened by the construction of a main highway.

Thanks to his efforts and pressure put forth by his committee, in 1992, he managed to convince the government to change the route of the highway.

At present, the organization is working with the indigenous people and inhabitants of this last rainforest to begin sustainable development projects, which would enable them to preserve their habitat.
