Solutions for Biodiversity and Communities

Ceiba’s mission is to help people improve their livelihoods through the conservation of biodiversity.  We focus on protecting dry tropical forests along the Pacific coast of Ecuador, and orchid-rich cloud forests in the Andes, 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 encompassing some of the world’s most biodiverse ecosystems.
