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.”
Of the 13,000 lmportant Bird & Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) identified by BirdLife worldwide, 277 are most severely under threat. Vital sites, such as Cambodia’s Lomphat Wildlife Sanctuary, are home to globally threatened birds such as Giant Ibis and other IBA ‘trigger species’. They face the most intense pressures and need our urgent help.
It’s no joke! Penguins are a highly threatened group of birds. On World Penguin Day, we’re celebrating the incredible (and shocking) feats of the world’s best avian swimmers, sharing the work of BirdLife Partners working to protect penguins around the world, and giving you a chance to walk among a penguin colony.
