Saving Wildlife and Wild Places in Ecuador
The Wildlife Conservation Society Ecuador (WCS Ecuador) is at the leading edge of conservation, turning science and research into action. Our mission is to save wildlife and wild places in Ecuador by developing a better understanding of critical wildlife issues, crafting science-based conservation solutions, and taking conservation actions that benefit both nature and people.
Natural resource extraction, the interaction of conservation and human livelihoods, climate change, and emerging wildlife diseases, are challenges that WCS is addressing globally. To face these challenges and to safeguard wild places and its wildlife, WCS builds strong, long-term partnerships as a mechanism for managing natural resource use, improving livelihood options and promoting effective governance frameworks.
