Report on Honduran Women Saving Endangered Parrots

With the funds raised last March, One Earth Conservation was able to hire 10 women to work at the Rescue and Liberation Center of Mabita. There have been 15 new parrots who have been rescued and added to the Center this year.

One of our Board members, Hector Orlando Portillo Reyes, is a Honduran wildlife biologist and here is how he replied in March to an email from Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner, Co-Director of One Earth Conservation, speaking about the impact of the pandemic on his country (note: English is not his first language):

"Greetings everyone, here in Honduras, like Guatemala, they have closed borders and there is a state of siege, so some constitutional guarantees have been lost, since many people still do not take the measures for good, so the government had to take extreme measures, for now it is 15 days and it is expected that it will probably be until Easter. At home we are locked up and we only go out for what is necessary. We do not know how all this will turn out, because we are a poor country and there are many people who use what they work during the day to live on that day. I think planet earth is taking a breather without so much pollution."

Due to the pandemic, we have not been able to organize and lead the wildlife club, nor were we able to produce the signs for visitors. We are planning to do both of those activities once the pandemic has ended. However, the Rescue Center remains open and operating even during these difficult times, and our in-field conservation work is also still being conducted by  local conservationists trained by One Earth Conservation and with remote support provided by Dr. Joyner and volunteer conservationists in the U.S.
