Welcome to CECCOT. If you love nature, we are an organization after your heart!

CECCOT is a tropical conservation, research and education organization based in the Amazon Rainforest of Southeastern Peru. We are run by the collaborative efforts of scientists, educators, stewards, and volunteers from Peru and the United States. Our conservation area and jungle lodge, Hacienda Herrera, are located in the Madre de Dios region, about 8 kilometers down the Madre de Dios River from the city of Puerto Maldonado.

Please take a look around our website. We hope to hear from you soon and even have the pleasure of welcoming you on-site in the Amazon to participate in one of our exciting programs.
