Preserving & Restoring The Most Endangered Rainforest On Earth

Saving Species, Storing Carbon & Improving Livelihoods in Ecuador

We Have Reached The Inflection Point

Mass Extinction

30% of all plant and animal species are on the brink of extinction.

Climate Change

Scientists warn that CO2 levels are on course to trigger catastrophic and irreversible changes by 2040.

Ecuador Where We Work Approximately 98% of Ecuador’s coastal forest has already been lost. It is one of the most endangered tropical ecosystems on earth. The Jama-Coaque Reserve (JCR) protects one of the last major remnants of rainforest and cloud forest in this critically-threatened region. JCR is located in the heart of the Tumbes-Chocó-Magdalena Biodiversity hotspot, about 10 km south of the equator line and 5 km inland from the Pacific Ocean.
