The foundation furthered this move to re-signify Candelaria by successfully lobbying local municipal authorities to pass an ordinance declaring Colomi, the municipality to which Candelaria belongs, an "Agro-ecological and Biodiversity Municipality" (Gobierno Municipal de Colomi 2002, 85; PROINPA 2002, 32).
