Third Millennium Alliance (TMA) was initiated as a 501c3 nonprofit in the U.S. in 2007 and incorporated under the name Grupo Ecológico Jama-Coaque in Ecuador in 2010. The pride and joy of TMA is the establishment of the Jama-Coaque Reserve in Manabi, Ecuador. Named after the Pre-Incan Jama-Coaque culture that inhabited the area, the Jama-Coaque Reserve currently protects more than 1,400 acres of tropical moist forest and premontane cloud forest in one of the last major remnants of Pacific Ecuadorian Forest in the Tumbes-Chocó-Magdalena Global Biodiversity Hotspot. The mission of TMA is to preserve the last remnants of Ecuador’s coastal Pacific Forest and to empower local communities to restore what has been lost. We envision a culture in which local communities recognize both the practical and intrinsic benefits of forest stewardship and manage the land accordingly, creating both economic and environmental sustainability in the region. This holistic approach ensures the well being of local peoples as well as the long-term success of our conservation objectives.
