The department of Choco is the second territory, followed by Antioquia, which are the most affected for illegal mining, for the year 2016, it owned 79% of the affected green areas in the country, and, for the year 2013, a study by the Ministry of Environment, revealed that in this region there were approximately 67,000 hectares of wetlands that they were transformed by the open-skies exploration or open-air exploration. In Colombia, illegal mining has brought with it various social problems, among which we find: water pollution, health problems, massive deforestation, economic conflicts and extermination of natural species. In the same context of ideas, this essay shows negative effects that there are in national territory about illegal mining taking as a specific case the Department of Choco, where it will be done some references to environmental pressure groups such as: Cocomopoca (from Choco), Greenpeace Colombia, Avaaz Colombia and CENSAT Agua Viva, with the purpose of studying the lobby management of these, taking into account the lack of regulations and institutional failures of the Colombian State in the face of the serious crisis of illegal mining. From the above, it is necessary to stand it out that in Colombia the pressure groups are not under a legislative block that limits their work or it determinates guidelines in the respective procedure.
