ECUADOR ETERNAL

PROTECTING A NATURAL JEWEL OF THE EARTH

NATURERS WILDERNESS PROJECT

We work with local Indigenous communities, people and projects in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest and beyond to help raise awareness of the threats to the people, the environment and endangered species - and create positive action to protect them. Ecuador is home to one of the most biodiverse habitats in the world. With over 300 species of mammals, 800 species of fish, and 350 species of reptiles, almost 1,700 bird species, and 16,000 species of plants (25% of which are endemic).

Conservation and Storytelling

Naturers Wilderness Project

We focus on supporting projects through conservation and storytelling that share the ancient indigenous wisdom of these magical forests with the rest of the world, who have been living in harmony with the natural world for millennia. Through action and storytelling, we can strengthen and protect indigenous territories with a purpose to connect, unite and create bonds worldwide, based on recognising the sacredness of all things, visible and invisible. 

Protecting Endangered Species

Naturers Community

Gemma is creating a Naturers community of positive change in Ecuador and across the world to share ideas, inspiration, content, education, collaborations, research, conservation, and beyond. Our impactful community-led conservation and storytelling initiative will protect endangered species, improve human well-being, restore and grow critical habitat, and empower the next generation of changemakers.

WOOLLY MONKEY

The Woolly Monkey in Ecuador is listed as an endangered species by the International Union for Nature. They live in dense tropical rainforests and are threatened by habitat loss and hunting. They are usually found in the canopy of the tallest trees, and shrub layers. In certain seasons groups enter flooded forests, due to a higher concentration of berries. They have prehensile tails, large, dark eyes and expressive faces and live in large social groups. They are rather slow-moving and generally travel on all fours, and often swing by their hands, feet, and tail or by tail alone. They are onmivorous, but mainly frugivorous with their diet primarily consisting of fruits. During periods of fruit scarcity their consumption of leaves and insects increases. Females drive the relationships that develop between opposite sexes within communities. Through our Naturers initiative we aim to protect vulnerable and endangered species in the Ecuadorian rainforests.

We are focussed on protecting and conserving forest in Ecuador which is home to highly threatened species, against the threat of logging and mining exploitation. In addition to conserving a key biodiversity area and various endemic, rare, and new-to-science species, we are creating a critical wildlife corridor, as well as crucial water resources for local and indigenous communities.

HELP US PROTECT THE ECUADORIAN RAINFOREST

Our work to illuminate and protect the incredible biodiversity of the rainforests in Ecuador is vital to the health of the country and the world at large. Your support helps preserve this essential ecosystem, in addition to funding the critical work of all of our Naturers fighting to protect fragile habitats, save threatened species and understand and illuminate the world around us through research, science, conservation and storytelling. Engaging local communities as partners in conservation is crucial. Your contribution to Naturers’ work is helping make a real difference in creating a more sustainable future for our planet.
