Reptiles of Ecuador | Contributor | Join and fund an expedition

There are only 50 species of reptiles in Ecuador left to be photographed before the book is complete. These are the rarest of Ecuador's 459 reptiles. To find them, a field expedition has to take place to the remote areas where these species occur. You can help us achieve this goal by funding the logistics of the expedition while you embark on it with our team of biologists. Below, you will find a list of the most important ones, along with their duration, team size and overall cost.
