We had a fantastic mission!  Over 600,000 tourists went to the beach during Carnival.  Project Ecuador’s largest volunteer team of 45 American ocean lifeguards worked along side 150 Ecuadorian lifeguards and did an exceptional job.  The result was no drownings during the 4 day holiday on the 15 supported beaches in 4 Provinces.  EC and USA lifeguards made over 252 rescues and over 2,000 preventions.


Ecuador has exhibited strong support of our water safety goals and all regions report gracious hospitality by our host cities.  Multiple government agencies worked together to provided support to the Ecuadorian lifeguards including rescue boat operations, beach vehicles and victim transport services.  Ecuador has sustained lifeguard operations.
