Nurturing Sustainability and Empowering Communities in Yasuní National Park

Welcome to our Projects page, dedicated to the preservation of the Amazon Rainforest within Yasuní National Park. Our initiatives focus on fostering sustainability and community development, allowing us to make a positive impact on both the environment and the lives of those who call this unique region home.
The Mandari Panga community, though relatively new to the tourism scene, has shown remarkable dedication in honing their skills within the hospitality and tourism sector, striving always to provide the utmost quality experience for our visitors. Recognizing the crucial role of protecting the Amazon rainforest, we understand the necessity of comprehending its significance, biodiversity, and delicate balance.

Our flagship project is the "Amazon Birdwatching Explorers"

Nurturing Tomorrow’s Guardians of the Rainforest: Deep within the heart of Yasuní National Park, our commitment to education and engagement takes flight through the “Amazon Birdwatching Explorers”.

Exploring the Avian Wonders: Nurtured by the lush biodiversity of Yasuní, our project introduces young minds to the enchanting world of birdwatching. Guided by experienced naturalists and local experts, children delve into the vibrant tapestry of avian life that inhabits this pristine rainforest. From the vibrant hues of parrots to the stealthy movements of toucans, each feathered inhabitant has a unique story to tell.

Igniting Conservation Consciousness: Through immersive workshops, hands-on activities, and guided expeditions into the heart of Yasuní, children not only learn about the remarkable birds in their ecosystem but also grasp the critical role these creatures play in maintaining the ecological equilibrium. Our aim is to ignite a sense of responsibility and foster a generation passionate about safeguarding the rainforest’s natural treasures.

Cultivating Future Birdwatching Guides: Beyond nurturing an appreciation for nature, our project extends a pathway for the future. As young participants develop their birdwatching skills and deepen their connection to the rainforest, they are empowered to become stewards of the environment and ambassadors for its conservation. The dream of becoming birdwatching guides themselves is nurtured, offering a sustainable livelihood while nurturing a profound love for their surroundings.

A Holistic Approach to Sustainable Communities: The “Amazon Birdwatching Explorers” exemplifies our holistic approach to community development and environmental preservation. By imparting knowledge, nurturing a connection to the rainforest, and providing opportunities for personal growth, we’re fostering a generation that values ecological conservation and community prosperity.

In partnership with the Canmore Rotary Club from Canada, we have initiated a birdwatching club for the children of our community school, aiming to foster environmental awareness and a deeper understanding of the rainforest's importance. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to those who have provided invaluable support: Lisa Pearson, Vortex Optics Birding US, Rotary Club Quito Bicentenario, and Andean Study, for their generous contributions and special assistance in this endeavor.
