THE PROJECT

This project is located in the Rio Bravo Ecological Reserve, 2 hours from Quito in the Northwestern Andean Cloud Forest near the town of Mindo. The cloud forest is recognized for its vast diversity in species, and here, this project can focus on the conservation and research of endangered species and habitats.

This reserve provides basic facilities for scientists, conservationists and students where there is direct access to the fragile cloud forest habitats. In addition, the reserve provides accommodation and guided tours for people into the forest and educates them about the value of the habitats. As well, due to the fact that the famous “Cock of the Rock” can be spotted here, as well as many other rare birds, plenty of bird enthusiasts visit the area each year.
