Nature Reserve & Biological Station

Help us fund a Motus tower

Join us in bringing cutting-edge Motus technology to Un poco del Chocó!

Motus utilizes advanced radio telemetry to track wildlife movements, providing crucial data for conservation efforts. We're launching a crowdfunding campaign to install the first Motus tower in the biodiverse Chocó region.

Motus Technology: Learn about the groundbreaking tracking system here.

Why It Matters:

  • Biodiversity: Northwest Ecuador hosts a tremendous diversity of bird species, but their movements are poorly studied.

  • Conservation Impact: Motus enables precise tracking for effective conservation strategies.


Collaborative Research Goals with Motus:

  1. Migration Patterns: Understand the migratory routes of bird species in the region.

  2. Behavioral Studies: Monitor and analyze the behavior of key wildlife populations.

  3. Habitat Use: Determine the preferred habitats of various species for targeted conservation efforts.

  4. Population Dynamics: Study the population dynamics and breeding behaviors of endangered species.

  5. Climate Change Impact: Assess how climate change influences the movement patterns of wildlife.

Help Us Study and Protect Northwest Ecuador's Resident and Migratory Bird Species!
