Our Mission

FCAT is an Ecuadorian NGO composed of local residents and scientists, all committed to achieving lasting conservation of biodiversity in the Tropical Andes region.

We work hand in hand with local stakeholders to obtain and make use of reliable information to conserve endangered habitat and species and promote social and economic well-being.

We combine capacity building and educational activities with scientific research, land purchase, and income diversification to take an integrative approach to conservation in this unique biodiversity hotspot.
