My friend Ana De La Torre and her family own Pacoche reserve in Ecuador. Please visit the link above. She bought this reserve about 5 years ago with the intent of saving this 'portion of the world'....a unique area to Ecuador that is the 'dry rain forest' region of Ecuador on the coast in the providence of Manabi. I know, it makes little sense, being a 'dry rain forest' but it is.
I visited this area during mid-July with Pete Mooney and with our friend Steve in Ecuador, we saw howler monkeys, and various birds too numerous to mention.
But Ecuador is a country, while they value the environment....have little money to provide for and protect reserves such as Pacoche Reserve. Please help this reserve out. Give a few bucks...a hundred, or whatever you feel like...
