The Jorupe Reserve is located in the Tumbesian forest of Ecuador and protects many Tumbesian endemics
Jorupe (previously named Jatunpamba), located in the Tumbesian region of south west Ecuador, consists of quality deciduous forest dominated by statuesque Ceiba trees.
The Tumbesian forest is a conservation priority because much of it is already cleared or badly degraded. Fundación Jocotoco intends to increase the size of this reserve in future years, if sufficient funds can be raised.
Wildlife on the Jorupe Reserve
It supports many rare species of plants and animals, including eight globally threatened birds such as Henna-hooded Foliage-gleaner.
