A lodge in Ecuador's Eastern Foothills,
built for birders by birders
One of the world's premier birding destinations, Ecuador is home to some 1600 species. However, one of the finest areas for bird watching in the Andes' Eastern Foothills is encountering serious problems. Rainforest in the renowned birding locale of Sumaco is rapidly being logged and converted into farm land, and habitat for birds and other animals requiring primary forest is being lost.
Wildsumaco Wildlife Sanctuary S.A., a small private company dedicated to conservation, is determined to save what we can of this fine forest and its wildlife before it disappears. Our land is a choice, sustainable and bird-rich piece of foothill rainforest, and as an important part of our conservation plan we have built the comfortable and convenient Wildsumaco Lodge on a ridge where forest was cleared years ago by previous owners.
We believe that the combination of land ownership and a fine birding lodge, along with our personal, hands-on, no administrative red-tape approach, is the perfect formula for rainforest conservation here in Sumaco.
