Provision of infrastructure at the Jorupe Reserve, 2011Fundación Jocotoco's Jorupe Reserve consists of 1374 hectares (13 km2) of high quality deciduous forest in the Tumbesian region of southwest Ecuador. It supports many endemic and rare species of plants and animals, including populations of twelve globally threatened birds, such as the Henna-hooded Foliage-gleaner. This project entailed building a new house (6 m x 8 m in size) for one of the reserve's forest guards to replace the existing, unsafe living quarters.
