Did You Know?
Since 1993, Siempre Verde has had Bosque Protector (Protected Forest) status from the Ecuadoran government.
Only 1–2.5 percent of all forests worldwide are considered cloudforests and only one-third of these are protected forests.
An estimated 93 percent of all cloudforests in Ecuador have already been cut down.
Cloudforests can occur at altitudes ranging from 500 m to 4000 m with rainfall amounts varying between 500 mm to 6000 mm (6 m!).
In July 2009, we installed a weather station at Siempre Verde. In the first year of data, the lodge received 2170.6 mm (85.5 in) of rain.
