Thanks to our supporters we have just completed a new purchase in the southern area of the Choco-Andean Corridor: 155 hectares (383 acres) of tropical montane cloud forest.
Around 80% is primary forest and the rest is good secondary forest and is located in the Intag area, just north of the Neblina Reserve (owned by Rainforest Concern). It borders with three private reserves (Arbol Lindo, Siempre Verde, and Siempre Vida), which in turn connect to the state protected Cotacachi Cayapas Ecological Reserve (205,000 hectares) - see map below.
This piece of land brings us very close to making the connection between the existing Neblina Reserve and Cotacachi Cayapas Ecological Reserve.
