Our mission is to restore, preserve and enhance the value and recognition of the natural heritage of the region of Cotopaxi, while contributing to the development of a more balanced and fair relationship between man and nature.
Our actions :

- To develop a monitoring and long-term management of the forest through regular inventories of the flora and fauna thanks to partnerships with universities and governmental and civil organizations.
- To involve local constituents in the natural preservation of the resources by recruiting local workers from the beginning of the project and by offering new working alternatives linked to the preservation of the natural heritage (conversion of former hunters into guides, preservation local knowledges …)
