COVID-19 gave us the opportunity to re-imagine how we connect with each other. We partnered with La Hesperia Cloud Forest Reserve and Ecuadorian enterprises to host a series of webinars with a wide range of topics that will prepare you to experience fully and holistically our natural ecosystems when you decide to visit us again.
VOISIN RATIONAL GRAZING
Juan Pablo Játiva
Within the area of influence of the Foundation, the main source of income for local people is the livestock industry. For this reason, we are committed to look for alternatives that allow this activity to be carried out sustainably: minimizing environmental degradation and reducing GHG emissions.
We are always looking for students and professionals in the veterinary and agropecuaria careers to support these efforts.
