Preventing Extinction Fund – Protected Area Rapid Response Award
Fundación Jocotoco is expanding their existing 2,477-hectare Narupa Reserve through the acquisition of 40 hectares of Evergreen Low Montane Forest in the eastern foothills of the Andes. This region of the upper Napo Valley is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world and is a hotspot of endemic birds and other species. This project secures important habitats for Guacamayo plump toads, military macaws, black-and-chestnut eagles, and other endangered species. This grant was made under the Preventing Extinction Fund, a joint initiative of QRFN and Rainforest Trust.
