Great Wilderness channels educational, financial and technological support to Ecuadorian non profits, while they provide us with tools and expertise to raise awareness of, and support for, educational programs that connect children and adults from the US, and around the world, with the rainforest conservation. Each year more than 1,000 American citizens travel to Ecuador to participate in educational and conservation programs such as volunteering at a reserve, study abroad, natural history courses and research conducted at each Biological Station.
Natural History Courses
We are currently visiting elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities to promote individual and group participation in these types of courses as well as the volunteerism at natural reserves and Biological Stations in Ecuador.
Recently, our colleague Vicki Breazeale participated in a Natural History Course on the Galapagos Islands organized by our partner organization in Ecuador. Vicki is designing new and engaging tours of the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon region, western lowland rainforest and high Andean regions of Ecuador.
