Maquipucuna Foundation: Preserving Ecuador, From Mangroves to Mountains
Join GLP Films as they visit the Maquipucuna Lodge in Ecuador, a beautiful lodge with an array of activities for nature-loving guests.
The lodge began over 20 years ago in hopes of preserving the area’s natural environment, but it has achieved that and much more, expanding to help support the local community in numerous ways. Community development is as important as rainforest protection to Maquipucuna. The lodge has ambitious plans to protect areas from the mangroves to the snow-capped mountains, and everything in between, aiming to save half of the country. The best part – it’s just crazy enough to work.
