Summary

Monkey falls is part of a critical freshwater creek system identified as under threat. The KIYOCAYO COMPASS: TDZ-0 Monkey Falls Initiative is designed to advance nature exploration and conservation of distressed ecosystems, via the implementation of an ever-evolving conservancy that services vital unprotected A1a Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) situated near the Cayo District Belize (CDB) / Peten Department Guatemala (PDG) border.

Challenge

After extensive in-situ surveys, we have identified an ecologically uninformed citizenry, vandalism, habitat disruption, unmanaged human and vehicle traffic, illegal poaching, dumping and pollution as some of the main threats to CR/EN flora and fauna that populate TDZ-0 Monkey Falls.

Solution

In efforts to mitigate these challenges, a conservation land grant was recently awarded to the Tropical Rainforest Institute of Belize. ECO-System by TDZ-0 Monkey Falls stakeholders and a temporary TECOPS ranger watch-station has been erected. Your support will help KIYOCAYO COMPASS to swiftly scale up our current conservation efforts, allowing us to establish and maintain an indigenous traditional community (ITC) conservation center, ranger post, SEEDS School and field station.

Long-Term Impact

Establishing a stable thriving conservation program will allow us to acquisition available properties and partner with freehold landowners situated in TDZ-0 Monkey Falls for the establishment of a 100+ acre IUCN Category II: Conservation Park. This 100+ acre protected area will strategically border the Government of Belize lands for future primate sanctuary and other expansion possibilities that advance the revival of threatened rainforest biodiversity.
