La Reserva Natural de las Aves El Dorado, fue creada el 31 de marzo de 2006, basándose en la urgencia de conservar uno de los sitios más frágiles e importantes de Colombia, la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, hábitat de un gran número de especies animales y vegetales únicas.

La reserva se encuentra ubicada sobre la Cuchilla de San Lorenzo, en el sector occidental de la vertiente norte de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, en el corregimiento de Minca, perteneciente al municipio de Santa Marta, departamento del Magdalena. Actualmente comprende una extensión de 1.024 hectáreas, en un rango altitudinal entre los 950 y los 2.600 m.s.n.m.

El sector norte de la Reserva se encuentra ubicado sobre la cuenca del río Gaira el cual es de vital importancia para la ciudad de Santa Marta; numerosas corrientes de agua de tercer y cuarto grado, las cuales son clave para comunidades menores como corregimientos y veredas, recorren el área. En el sur de la actual área protegida, las quebradas vierten principalmente hacia el Río Toribio.

  • Adding the option to have your refund directly deposited shaves about a week off
    of these timeframes; e-filed returns with direct deposits can even be processed
    in as little as 10 days. If your tax return shows a balance due,
    the IRS will charge you a penalty of 4. For example, it is a business bad debt
    if a customer fails to pay their invoice if you
    are on the accrual basis of accounting. The thought of
    not knowing whether or not you owe back taxes or knowing that you have not paid for them is distressing.
    The moment an IRS assortment notice arrives, many folks try to perform
    with the IRS on their own to resolve again tax troubles, and get on their own into deeper trouble by unintentionally incriminating on their own.
