Season’s Greetings from the Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservation! It’s the time of year for giving, and we ask you to make a donation in support of Ceiba’s conservation, research, and education programs in Ecuador. You can read about all that we’ve achieved in 2018 in our annual newsletter, Kapok. Inside you’ll find updates on a new Biosphere Reserve, a new coastal protected zone, and the 15th anniversary of the Lalo Loor Dry Forest.
In 2019, we have big plans to capitalize on these conservation successes. We will produce “Trees by the Ton” by supporting the creation of local nurseries to grow native tree seedlings needed for reforestation on the coast. We also will create a “Seeds for Sustainability” fund to provide small grants and technical support for sustainable microenterprises and educational programs in communities that protect forests, on the coast and in the Andes.
With your help, we can maintain the conservation momentum that is on the upswing in Ecuador. Please make a donation today, and you can feel good about the plants, animals, and local livelihoods you’ve supported.
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.
