Ecuador is one of the world’s most biodiverse countries in relation to its surface area. On the same day, you can go from the lush forests of the Amazon to the cold high plains of the Andes or the dry forests of the Pacific coast. This variety of bioregions in the same territory makes Ecuador one of the most attractive places to study flora and fauna. A wide variety of research is being carried out on the species present in each ecosystem, the state of conservation of these ecosystems and their interactions with man. Mastozoology, botany, ornithology and ethnobiology are just a few examples of the sciences under development.
If you’re fascinated by nature and have a particular interest in the research and conservation projects carried out in Ecuador, this is your chance to join a group of researchers and enjoy a unique experience. This type of scientific itinerary has been designed so that you can discover all the secrets of the country’s different bioregions, accompanying the group of scientists carrying out each investigation. From monitoring mammals such as the jaguar or various species of primate using trap cameras in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, to conservation studies of critically endangered species in the Galapagos Islands, these trips will help you understand and interpret nature’s countless riches in the most in-depth way.
