Mission

We are committed to biodiversity conservation and research, protecting our ancestral territory and its natural resources, developing environmentally sound income alternatives, and educating our youngest generation. FSC has received and managed grants from both government and private sources for activities directed to the conservation and management of Cofan ancestral territories in northeastern Ecuador, and for the development of strategies that will allow the Cofan people to maintain cultural and economic stability. We work closely with FEINCE, the Ecuadorian Cofan Indigenous Federation.
