Protected area management

Protected area and wildlife management

  • WCS promotes the implementation of landscape-scale conservation in reserve networks to reduce the impacts of habitat loss and fragmentation, and increasing isolation among protected areas.

Major accomplishments:

  • The Ministry of the Environment is implementing a new model of protected area management based on the concept of landscape-scale conservation. This initiative is being implemented in five pilot landscapes including seven protected areas and two corridors located in the three natural regions of continental Ecuador (Pacific Coast, Andes, and Amazon).
