Welcome to Ceiba

The Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and rehabilitation of tropical habitats, protection of their flora and fauna, and education of the next generation of conservationists. Founded in 1997, with headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin, we work primarily in the hyper-diverse South American country  of Ecuador.

Ceiba sponsors scientific research, provides public education and supports community-based actions that promote wildlife, plant, and habitat conservation. We emphasize projects that empower local landowners and rural communities to actively participate in sound land management practices that maintain ecosystem integrity and biodiversity while enhancing sustainable economic opportunity.
