With this grant, the American Bird Conservancy is creating a conservation corridor by changing a series of "paper parks" (legally designated parks with little to no infrastructure) to a carefully managed region devoted to sustaining biodiversity. Outcomes include the addition of 1,100 hectares to and improvement of management for the Tapichalaca reserve in southern Ecuador, creation of a 300,000-hectare conservation corridor from the Alto Mayo protected area to the Maranon River Valley in northern Peru, and identification and implementation of polylepsis sites—a critical Andean cloud forest habitat.

Help us spread the word.

Creating positive outcomes for future generations.
