We are located in the Ayalán sector of the El Morro parish in the Guayaquil canton, where the biodiversity of flora, marine and wild fauna is abundant. We are always committed to the reduction of negative social and environmental impacts through the conservation of mangroves, artificial wetlands and the adoption of sustainable practices.

In this area we protect more than 1000 hectares of virgin mangroves, made up of two types of Mangrove:

  • Red mangrove – Rhizophora mangle.
  • White mangrove – Laguncularia racemosa.

Additionally we have an extensive dry forest area in non intervened highlands such as:

  • Ceibo – Ceiba trichistandra.
  • Cascol – Caesalpina glabatra.
  • Bototillo – Cochlospermum vitifolium.
  • Among others.

We have a biological corridor that allows the connection between the dry forest area on the west side with the east side, its width is from 142m to 842m in its widest part.

These mangroves are home and refuge for wildlife, from migratory bird species to reptiles and marine species.
Among the birds that inhabit this ecosystem are:

  • Herons.
  • Roseate Spoonbill.
  • Whistling Duck.
  • Sparrowhawks.
  • Owls.
  • Gulls.
  • Frigatebird
  • Swallows
  • Pelicans

We have been concerned about developing a Reforestation Plan in order to recover green areas in the area of direct influence and it is considered that the most optimal places are the areas adjacent to the pools with little mangrove cover and dry forests with the cultivation of native forests.

It is essential that we continue with the protection of our mangroves and guarantee the productivity they provide to the environment.
