History behind the Biological Station

Over the years, Mindo and its surroundings have been the epicenter of tireless conservation efforts that have brought this destination to its current state of preservation and exceptional biodiversity. For decades, various organizations, foundations, and local communities have worked hard to protect and conserve the valuable ecosystems that surround Mindo.
