KEEPING THE EARTH IN BALANCE

By Recuperating, Protecting and Preserving

“The Mesoamerican Biological Corridor” & its Magnificent Biodiversity.

PROTECTING RAINFORESTS, BIODIVERSITY & ECOSYSTEMS.

“The Mesoamerican Biological Corridor”

MISSION
  • RECUPERATE 1 MILLION HECTARES OF DESTROYED TERRAIN BY PLANTING 2.5 BILLION TREES INSIDE THE MESOAMERICAN BIOLOGICAL CORRIDOR (Situated Between Honduras & Nicaragua).
  • Put a stop to deforestation by empowering the local rural indigenous population by way of job creation based on regenerative agriculture & renewables.
  • Building an independent sustainable ecological indigenous society.
  • Restoration, Conservation & Preservation.
  • The center dark green between Honduras & Nicaragua represents the area we exclusively operate in and aim to restore and protect.
  • Map Clearly Shows: Dark Green Represents Rainforest Intact.
  • Light Green Indicates Lost Terrain Due to Deforestation & Cattle Ranching-Pasture.
  • Brown Grey Indicates Completely Destroyed = Dead Terrain.

DESTROYED TERRAIN

Main Points of importance

The 4 reserves (Bosawas, Patuca, Tawahaka & Rio Plantano) are declared protected sites under UNESCO.

The reserve encompasses both mountainous and lowland tropical rainforest, full of diverse wildlife and plant life. The reserve is part of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor that stretches from Mexico southwards through Central America.

The biosphere reserve has a number of endangered species and the botanical diversity is very high, with vascular plants considered to be in the thousands, rich in invertebrate and vertebrate taxa. Within the Biosphere live an estimated 200,000 insect species, it is a rich landscape with 21 different ecosystem types and is home to 13% of known species worldwide. Species include white-headed capuchin, mantled howler and spider monkeys, brown-throated sloth, paca, kinkajou, coatimundi tayra, Central American otter, collared peccary, white-lipped peccary and red brocket.

Quetzals and guacamayas are present in significant numbers, along with the largest and most powerful eagle found in the Americas, the harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja). These, however, are just a few of the over 700 bird species potentially found in the biosphere reserve.

Pumas and jaguars are present in the reserve.

The reserve combined is home to over 150,000 local inhabitants of which over 50,000 are indigenous people. The population includes five very different and unique cultural groups: Mayagana, Miskito, Pech, Garifunas, and the ladino. The smaller groups, the Pech, Garifunas, and Miskito inhabitants live mostly in the north, alongside the river. These people have a variety of rights to the land including private ownership and mostly use the land for agriculture.

Currently there are threats to the conservation of the reserve which include illegal hunting, logging and clearing of land to graze cattle.     

In 2011, UNESCO placed the reserve on the “World Heritage in Danger List”, it is the second largest rainforest in the Western Hemisphere, after the Amazon in Brazil.

Our reserve still has over 200+ archeological sites, including the point where Christopher Columbus first arrived in mainland America, the reserve also contains ruined settlements, including stone from buildings and roads, rock carvings, and other remains.

In this initiative we ensure that land acquired will never be used for agricultural cultivation and be solely allocated for biodiversity, conservation & preservation purposes. Here we aim to purchase dilapidated destroyed land to be held in our “Mesoamerican Land Preservation Trust” to be restored to its natural condition. All land will be monitored and maintained using funds raised in an effort to guarantee that for hundreds of years going forward we maintain ecological biodiversity and habitat for all those creatures close to extinction and in the spirit of land preservation, biodiversity, conservation & climate action.

Thank you for participating and donating a tree or two, for those of you who would like to partner up with an indigenous family and help empower our people and pave the way to a collective sustainable future, we offer empowerment partnerships via our SD17 Sustainable Development Crypto Coin.
