Conservation of a Key Piece of Dry Forest in Zapotillo
September 2008

The most pristine dry forest of Ecuador

Through the purchase of a 2,000 acre property in the Cazaderos sector of Ecuador, NCI will initiate conservation activities in the most pristine dry forest of Ecuador. This sector forms a forest corridor between the La Ceiba Reserve and the Biosphere Reserve of Northwestern Peru. The endemic fauna and flora here have survived thanks to the isolated location and small population in the area, but the situation is changing due to the increased cultivation of corn. The critically threatened crocodile – Grandes Cocodrilos de Tumbes (Crocodylus acutus) – can even be seen in this area. This first purchase is located within an area of approximately 12,400 acres of intact forest where other potential purchase are possible.
