Aves y Conservación
We are the oldest bird conservation and research organization in Ecuador. We work in Important Biodiversity Areas (KBA’s) in alliance with local organizations and involving rural communities, who become the direct beneficiaries and main actors of our intervention.
“The freedom of birds and their ability to go as far as their wings allow them, drive us to continue the tradition of Aves y Conservacion begun 35 years ago to leave new generations a more sustainable world for all.”
