Conservation and Reforestation

Conservation

Vamos Expeditions supports the conservation of the Cloud forest through the Golondrinas project.

Through the initiative of Maria Eliza Manteca and the Golondrinas project, Vamos Expeditions is dedicated to the conservation of natural resources, conservation of cloud forest, recuperation of eroded soils, and environmental education in the mountainous region of Northern Ecuador. Inadequate agricultural management such as burning, row planting, overgrazing, among others, and high levels of water erosion have resulted in soil degradation and thus, a loss in soil productivity. In Ecuador, this is one of the most successful deep-rooted ecological initiatives in the community. The principal objective of the Foundation is to conserve this unique forest ecosystem all while improving the quality of life for the people in the region. The latter objective is being carried out via classes in environmental education and the introduction of appropriate agricultural techniques.

Reforestation
Vamos Expeditions is a member of Fair Travel.
• The projects of Fair Travel contribute to the improvement of people’s living conditions and their environments in regions which are popular tourist destinations but also face socio-ecological problems.
• For every passenger that comes on a trip with Vamos Expeditions we contribute one euro to finance the plantation of one native tree (species of Quenua, chachacomo and quishwar trees) in the area of Apu Pachatusan on the land of the communities Oropesa, San Geronimo and San Salvador. The project is executed in cooperation with APTAE and the Institute of Machu Picchu.
• In the last 2 years 20 000 trees have been planted.
