Biodiversity and forest conservation

Our farms are located in the North-west of Ecuador surrounded by humid forests one of the world’s 10 biodiversity hot spots, which correspond to managed areas having high floral and faunal diversity. The Ecuadorian Government has designated these forests as protected areas.
At Natural Habitats, we are aware of the importance of the biodiversity and its conservation, for that reason we have acquired primary and secondary forestland for conservation and study purposes. Moreover, cooperating companies and smallholders have to sign an agreement explicitly stating they will preserve primary forest.
