We are a married couple, both with European family backgrounds who were born & raised in Ecuador, learn about their culture, nature & felt in love with the mega-diverse country. Eventually decided to move back to Europe so we agreed it was a good time to promote the country giving back all it gave us and what we learned from it.
We want to share with the world the importance of this small country for the planet and all that it has to offer.
We trusted that a good starting point & audience would be Europe. We truly believe that the world can be a better place and we are confident that the changes must start by protecting the environment, starting with mega-diverse countries with several protected areas like The Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. Throughout the years we realize the only way of preserving the environment & humanity is by becoming sustainable.
Along the way we have found fellow & partners who want to join the mission and share the same values with us.
