Review for Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservation, Inc., Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Studying with the Ceiba Foundation in Ecuador was my most rewarding educational experience. I was thoroughly impressed with how well the Foundation was organized and able to honor its goals of tropical conservation by educating communities in Ecuador as well as American university students.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

studying various ecosystems across Ecuador and taking part in local conservation projects

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its funding !

Role:  Volunteer & I participated in the Tropical Conservation Semester.
 

Review for Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservation, Inc., Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered with the Ceiba Foundation at their Orchid Reserve just outside of Quito, Ecuador. After many years of working with a local family, Ceiba created a locally owned reserve where the land-owners were able to self-manage (and conserve!) precious montane forest that would have otherwise been destroyed. Their method of conservation can succeed in the long-run because it has personal incentives for the local people involved. Ceiba is a wonderful organization working for conservation in a country that has some of the most precious landscape remaining!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

visiting the reserves protected by the Foundation and seeing rare species and abundant plant life.
