PUERTO VALLARTA, JALISCO, MEXICO, Jan. 14, 2022 / — The Vallarta Bird and Nature Festival on February 25, 26 and 27 showcases the beauty of Mexico and highlights important conservation efforts at the Vallarta Botanical Garden

Vallarta Botanical Gardens is a leading environmental organization in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with a mission to study, preserve and exhibit native Mexican plants for the enjoyment of locals and international visitors and is one of main conservation leaders in Mexico for more than 16 years.

From a world-class facility in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the Vallarta Botanical Garden offers an unparalleled opportunity to share the wonder of Mexico’s vast diversity of unparalleled and unique plant species with people around the world. The assembled botanical collections are housed in a secure environment and the garden maintains the most visited public collection of orchids in Mexico.

Additionally, the Vallarta Botanical Garden has focused on protecting endangered species and habitats since its founding in 2004. In an ongoing campaign, the Vallarta Botanical Garden is playing a vital role in a project to conserve a decade for the iconic military macaw (ara militaris mexicanus), which was disappearing from the region until recently. The artificial nesting box project has provided a vital link in the breeding of this species at the summit, and wild military macaws can be seen daily at the botanical garden.

The Vallarta Botanical Garden is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax deductible. The Vallarta Botanical Garden also provides tax-deductible receipts for donations from Canadian taxpayers.

“When I moved here in 2004, I didn’t know that I was going to create a botanical garden. One day the idea came to me while hiking in the Sierra Madre mountains. I felt like I was walking in a dream looking at all varieties of wild plants, including cacti and beautiful wild orchids, and wondering why there was no botanical garden in Puerto Vallarta. Since founding our gardens in 2005, we have won numerous international tourism awards for garden excellence and have become a tourism generator for the Puerto Vallarta area.”

The Vallarta Botanical Garden celebrated Mexico’s magnificent wildlife, diversity and proudest species of flora and birds with the remarkable success of the Vallarta Bird and Nature Festival, drawing crowds of visitors and raising awareness of the importance of wildlife preservation.
The Vallarta Bird and Nature Festival is held annually to raise awareness of birds and nature and to inspire people to get involved in protecting wildlife and habitat here in Mexico.

This year, the Festival will be held from February 25 to 27 at the Garden. Activities including visits to the macaw sanctuary and photography tours to various locations in the area can be selected from the event website, Vallarta Bird and Nature Festival – VBNF. The Vallarta Bird & Nature Festival supports bird and nature conservation projects.

The Garden exists today, but the goal is to extend the longevity of Mexican nature and ensure the protection of these wild lands and species for future generations. “It’s a tremendous effort that cannot be accomplished alone,” says Managing Director Jeremy Taylor.

“Thinking that someone else is going to ‘solve the problem’ has become the problem. The Vallarta Botanical Garden believes that new solutions most often result from cooperation and collaboration. We look forward to working with new partners to bring new ideas to life and ensure the preservation of ecosystems and the protection of species.
