The Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservation (CFTC) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1997, dedicated to the preservation and rehabilitation of tropical habitats, and the conservation of their plants and animals in the Lalo Loor Dry Forest reserve on the coast of Ecuador and the El Pahuma Orchid Reserve in the Andean montane forest. Our mission is to sponsor scientific research, provide public education and support community-based actions that promote the conservation of ecosystem integrity and biodiversity. We emphasize projects which promote the empowerment of local landowners and communities, and encourage them to actively participate in the sustainable management of their land.
