We are the Aves y Conservación Foundation, a partner of BirdLife International in Ecuador. Currently we are working on two Important Birds Areas: Mindo and Cayambe-Coca (at the Pichincha province, northern Ecuador), with the objective of recovering Andean forest. Representative fauna benefiting with this project are species such as the Andean Bear (Tremarctos ornatus) and the black-breasted puffleg (Eriocnemis nigrivestis); the latter considered the emblem bird of Quito the capital of Ecuador.
