Maquipicuna Foundation

The Maquipicuna Foundation was established in 1988 as a nonprofit local organization, with the vision of working on biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of natural resources in Ecuador. 

There is also a Research Station that provides basic laboratories and accommodation for 20 scientists, naturalists and volunteers and a camping area for those who are looking for a deeper contact with nature.

Maquipucuna makes an excellent extension to any Ecuador, Amazon or Galapagos trip. Please contact the office for information and advice.
