Experience the life in a forest, in a private reserve of cloudy forest, located in the ecuadorian Andes. The activities we do in the reserve, help us to protect it and to do conservation in one of the remnants of cloudy forest Activities Organic agriculture: to clean and take care of the fruit species and to build an orchard for edible species. Waste management: to create material to do a correct separation of waste and facilitate the recycling of materials. Soil restoration: cleaning and maintenance of paths and trails to promote the conservation of soil. Sowing different species of plants in the grassland area, to restore the soil. Water protection: protection of the water sources with native species planted around the rivers to prevent dryness. Recycling material: to use materials like tires, pallets, old tables to build new furniture and equipment Help in the construction: frequently we improve our infrastructure to make the accommodation more comfortable, this year our objective is to build rooms for accommodation for future volunteers and the work consists on picking rocks from the river to make the foundation.
accommodation and food in Quito and in Proyecto Chiriboga, is provided at the “houses” of the Foundation Proyecto Ecológico Chiriboga, sharing rooms and toilettes with other volunteers.
The Chiriboga project is located 50.5km southwest of Quito, at Chiriboga town. Reforestation and other forms of ecological work are the activities in the project. The placement is only carried out in groups and requires a minimum of 6 and up to 12 volunteers. The Foundation Proyecto Ecológico Chiriboga started its work in a place located 50 kms. In the southwest of Quito, in the Chiriboga region, the Foundation protects a Reserve where we made reforestation work and protection of the nature, due to there is flora and fauna in danger extinction. Nowadays the Foundation works in other places of Ecuador making environmental awareness in schools. A wonderful variety of birds, mammals like the spectacled bear, cuchuchos, small jaguars, deer, cervicabras, peccaries pigs live in freedom within the premises of Chiriboga Project. The mountains in this part of the Andes produce freshwater; the rivers originating in these mountains are the Esmeraldas River basin.
You don’t need to spend lots of money on special safari type clothing, it is enough to bring clothes which you don’t mind to spoil or to get damaged, it is preferable to wear long pants, t-shirts with long sleeves while working to get protected from mosquitoes bites; light clothes are wonderful to dry. At departure, you are welcome to donate your used clothes to the program of course if they still are in good conditions. Entertainment is up to you. In the afternoons there is time for reading, playing cards, listening to music if you wish to do something like this, bring it with you (along with batteries). You should also bring your own bilingual dictionary. Life at is very simple in the cloudy forest. • Rubber Boots, can be purchased in Quito, the rainforest could get very muddy and for the protection of the machetes • Insect repellent • Rain coat Work gloves • Light clothes and heavy clothes since weather is very variable and unpredictable. • Torch, at the end of the project we usually ask if the volunteers would be kind enough to donate them to the project. • Medicines – some basic medicine should be brought for problems like headaches, coughs, stomach-aches etc., if you can donate medicines people from the projects will appreciate this donation. • Sandals and walking shoes • Sun block lotion • Batteries for your torch if you need • Environmentally friendly soap • Baseball cap or hat • Books to read • Towels, bathing suit, wash clothes and all necessary personal hygiene items.
