RIVER BIOLOGICAL RESERVE BIGAL

Private protected area consisting of Foothills Forests located between 450 and 1000 meters above sea level. On this Amazonian side of the Andean Slopes, the Foothill Forests hide one of the highest levels of biodiversity and endemism in the world, and form a series of rich ecosystems highly endangered throughout the eastern regions of the Andes (Colombia, Ecuador and Peru).
Located in the southern buffer zone of Sumaco National Park (one of the least explored protected area in Ecuador), The Bigal Reserve´s old growth forests are home to a diversified panel of animal life which includes Andean higher elevation species as well as many species usually found in the Amazonian lowlands.

Bigal River Biological Reserve is open to visitors, adventurers, scientists, interns, students and volunteers. Your visit and support are essential to help us preserve the unique habitats found south of Sumaco National Park, along the Bigal River´s banks
