National Parks and examples of Linking Tourism & Conservation of Ecuador

Ecuador has nearly 30 national parks and preserves that together protect all of its varied ecosystems and approximately 17% of the national territory. Those protected areas cover everything from the country's highest mountains to the blue depths of the Galápagos archipelago, and include vast expanses of Amazon rainforest, misty cloud forest, and paramo, as well as the mangroves and threatened tropical dry forest of the Pacific lowlands. Ecuador developed a number of good examples of Linking Tourism & Conservation, such as Galapagos or the Yasuni National Park.
