Protecting beaches and rainforest in Honduras

$25 $32,975
Raised Remaining


Representing several thousand inhabitants of the Honduran Mosquitia, MOPAWI works to protect habitats ranging from coastal beaches to pine savanna and primary rainforest.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

A key outcome of MOPAWI's work has been the recognition of community land rights, including a 40 year agreement on 68,000 hectares of broadleaf and pine forest. MOPAWI has also been able to protect some 230,000 hectares of Tawahka ancestral territories through declaration of the Tawahka Biosphere Reserve.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project promotes organic production of cacao, eco-tourism development, and responsible forest management.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project promotes sustainable income generating activities that allow communities to emerge from poverty without imperiling the species with which they coexist.
