Hard data from twelve years of our field work allowed one of our Ecuadorian partners, Reserva Jama Coaque, to purchase 76 hectares of degraded land for reforestation. This land will become a biologically rich and critical wildlife corridor between Jama Coaque and our other Manabí Provence partner, Biological Reserva Lalo Loor. We are working with them to acquire over 200 more hectares. In a time of rapid climate change, this is a key conservation purchase in one of the world’s rarest of biodiversity and endemism hotspots. Less than 5% of this original old growth forest remains.
