Trainer in Zoo in Quito

An alternative zoo near Quito gives animals that can no longer live in the wild a new home. Since living in confined enclosures causes stress for the animals, they need special training.

On the Galápagos island of San Cristóbal, sea seals sunbathe peacefully next to people on the beach. It is an idyll that is threatened by plastic waste. An environmental protection program takes care of the cleaning of the beaches and the sensitization of the population.

Ecological Farm Community

Ecological farm community
The work in the project
I spent two months at the Ecological Farm in Ecuador. The experience I made there definitely changed me for the better. I returned home fully motivated and equipped to tackle projects in my local fields that I had been longing for.

Sustainability in everyday life at the ecofarm
I met many visitors during my stay. Even those who stayed only a few days went home with new knowledge.
There is so much going on at the farm in terms of projects or methods of sustainable living that you can learn in a very short time. There is much to do and the owners are happy to help newcomers into the routine.
From the work in the fields to the quiet nights, I got to experience a new way of living. I realized how wonderful it is to simply live sustainably and this project provides the perfect community in which to learn how to do so.

My recommendation
If you want to see excellent examples of ecotourism, organic farming and agro-ecology, this is the place to go. I hope everyone gets a chance to visit it once!
