Lalo Loor

The Lalo Loor Dry Forest Reserve protects 250 hectares (approx. 500 acres) of tropical deciduous forest, south of the town of Pedernales in the Pacific coastal province of Manabí, Ecuador. This forest lies in a transition zone between the very wet forests to the north and the very dry forests to the south. As such, the Lalo Loor Dry Forest is incredibly diverse, having representative species from both kinds of habitat. In fact, this particular forest reserve is considered by many experts to be one of the most unique and pristine locations in the entire region! The main goals of the reserve are environmental education, biological inventories, developing community tourism, reforestation, and the connection of a biological corridor that will provide habitat for the species of the region.
