Ecuador Earthquake Recovery Fund

On April 16 a massive earthquake struck coastal Ecuador, demolishing buildings, roads, and infrastructure, killing over one hundred people, and leaving thousands homeless. Ceiba's reserve, the Lalo Loor Dry Forest is located close to the epicenter, and the rural communities with whom we work have been gravely affected.

The power of this earthquake, and the scale of damage, make it clear that recovery efforts will be arduous, lengthy, and expensive. Ceiba has established an Earthquake Recovery Fund for affected communities, and to channel the outpouring of support from all those who have a personal connection to Tabuga, Camarones, and coastal Ecuador -- former students and volunteers, researchers, friends, and family.

Donations may be made online through our YouCaring site (click image to right), through your bank, or via mail. We pledge that 100% of donations will be go directly to earthquake recovery efforts on the coast.


Forest Conservation Depends on Our Donors!

Protecting habitat requires building fences, hiring park guards, installing informative signage, sending out monitoring teams, and carrying out community outreach. It also involves helping local communities find more sustainable ways of living. That's where your donation goes. Help us protect tropical forests and support community efforts to adopt more sustainable livelihoods. You may give to our general fund, donate specifically to our current campaign, or help sustain one of the ongoing programs below. There are several ways to give.
