Managing Species Rich Cloud Forests
April 2009

Home to the spectacled bear, mountain tapir, ocelot and puma

We have sent a detailed proposal to the Municipality of Loja to assume management of 30,000 hectares of the Romerillos tract that is owned by the municipality and borders Podocarpus National Park, but that is not actively managed. This would result in conservation of a wonderful cloud forest that is under threat. Through a thorough survey of the land area we have already recommended that 7,400 hectares of exceptionally preserved cloud forest be established as three municipal reserves adjacent to the Podocarpus Park. The region protects an incredible amount of biodiversity and is home to such attractive mammals as the spectacled bear, mountain tapir, ocelot and puma.
