The Tangaré Foundation is an Ecuadorian non-governmental, non-profit organization registered in the Ministry of Environment under the Ministerial Agreement No. 003. Official Register No. 539.

We aim to help promote economically viable alternatives to current practices that are not sustainable. This will be achieved through a combination of research, natural resources management and environmental education.
