Ceiba is excited to announce a new conservation partnership to protect one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, the Amazon Rainforest of the Tiputini Biodiversity Station.
For years Ceiba has led our world class field courses to Tiputini, nestled in the eastern lowlands of Ecuador, where students explore and study one of the finest examples of Amazon rainforest anywhere on the planet. Teeming with monkeys, frogs, birds, and highly threatened species like jaguars and tapirs, the station lies in the center of the 4 million acre Yasuní Biosphere Reserve.
But even this remote and world-famous forest is under threat, from illegal hunting and logging, unregulated ranching and agriculture, and encroaching oil operations. Tiputini has served for decades as a conservation outpost holding those forces at bay, but now they need help. Together, we are launching an ambitious collaboration to raise funds, promote education, and strengthen forest protection in and around the Tiputini station.
