Studying the habitats we are protecting, and evaluating the effectiveness of reserves at safeguarding rare species, is a key component of Ceiba’s conservation work.  It is our goal to promote the study of tropical ecosystems, their flora and fauna, and how they are viewed and utilized by local people.  We encourage researchers interested in the study of tropical ecosystems to consider conducting studies at one of Ceiba’s project sites: the El Pahuma Orchid Reserve, in the cloud forests of the Andes, and the Lalo Loor Dry Forest Reserve, near the equator on the dry forest coast.
