The 19th of December the ecological corridor of El Oro was officially declared
The 19th of December the ecological corridor of El Oro was officially declared. Fundación Jocotoco, World Wildlife Fund, Instituto Nacional de Biodiversidad, and Naturaleza y Cultura Internacional were part of this important event. This declaration is a milestone for the protection of Buenaventura Reserve and the unique cloud forests of south-western Ecuador, which harbor many endemic species, such as our flagship species El Oro Parakeet. This project started with the support of Loro Parque Fundación.
In addition, Jocotoco signed a conservation agreement with Clemente Bravo, the Governor of El Oro province, and the Municipality of Piñas to continue our conservation and reforestation activities in Buenaventura Reserve.
