Wildlife conservation education and wildlife habitat creation

The Problem

To encourage the children and youth of Puerto Lopez town and county to protect the lanscapes, to value native flora and fauna, to plant useful native trees and bushes in their gardens, to appreciate and support the Machalilla National Park and the remaining wildlife habitat outside it, and to develop in general a new, more positive attitude towards Nature, which is gradually disappearing under bulldozers due to urban sprawl and "development".

Our Plan

It will make use of the available local resources in terms of people who are motivated and have the same goal to protect the natural ecosystems and their species from senseless destruction, and provide local children with opportunities to enjoy contact with Nature, including visits to our own large wildlife garden. I hope also to be able to produce printed materials including small books on the flora and fauna of this area aimed at awareness-raising in the local population as to the wonderful species in the surrounding Dry Scrub and Forests and how to help them survive.
