The mangrove ecosystem is an important part of the park. The fish come here to leave their eggs and raise their young. Here they spent a long time feeding because this place offers a lot of food and shelter. Later they move out to the open sea when they are juveniles or even larger. The mangroves function on the dynamic of rising and falling tides

The identity of the Pacific is:
Black communities are located near to the coast. In the interior part of the rainforest are the indigenous communities. The area that contains the indigenous communities is humid tropical rainforest. In this Ecosystem of humid tropical rainforest, there is a very high level of biodiversity of animals and plants.

In the case of Utria Park and especially Choco, there are some species which are in critical danger. The first strategy of the National park through ecotourism is to set an economic and educational goal in order to create a conscience in the local population and improve their quality of life. The goal is to develop all the processes present in the region: Work with the indigenous communities, educational institutions, NGOs and community leaders, in order to emphasise the conservation of our environment.
