Our network of private reserves forms
the backbone of our habitat conservation; and, our networking with other forest conservationists, neighbors and others helps give it body.
Our 6 forest reserves fall along an altitudinal gradient an the West slope of the Andes in NW Ecuador. Each reserve connects to its surrounding ecosytem and neighboring forests forming what we consider ecological corridors: as you can see on the map below and elsewhere on this site, there are 3 main “micro-corridors” where we work, and these help conserve connectivity within the larger, altitudinal “macro-corridor” that brings it all together. This swath, mixing agricultural and forest lands with several towns and villages, links the Tropical Andes and Tumbes-Chocó-Magdalena biodiversity Hotspots as characterized by Conservation International, our strategic allies.
