Welcome to Ceiba

   Creating win-win solutions for biodiversity and people

Ceiba’s mission is to help people improve their livelihoods through the conservation of biodiversity.  Our focus is on protecting the seasonally dry tropical forests of western Ecuador, and the Andean cloud forests, two of the most threatened ecosystems on Earth.  We believe that conservation of biodiversity will alleviate poverty if rural landowners and communities are empowered to make ecologically-sound land management decisions.  Founded in 1997, with headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin, Ceiba works primarily in the South American nation of Ecuador, a country that comprises some of the world’s most biodiverse ecosystems.
