We continue supporting Cuerpos de Conservación de Omoa (CCO), the NGO that co-administrates the Cuyamel Omoa National Park. With your help we were able to provide funding to develop a project called “Improving Governance and the Scientific Basis of Landscape in the Paraiso, Muchilena and Chachahuala” (PAMUCH) Fish Replenishment Zone, Omoa, Honduras”
Through this support we´ll be able to strengthen the Governance with the participation of stakeholders, expand the information base of the landscape of PAMUCH, promote processes of scientific research and social knowledge of the lionfish and expand the technical recommendations for its control.
The objectives of this phase are:
- Evaluate the progress made with the PAMUCH Interinstitutional Committee and propose new management actions.
- Carry out a study of the area of influence of the ARP PAMUCH to determine the environmental problems and identify potential sustainable alternatives that will allow the improvement of income to the surrounding inhabitants and within the micro-watersheds.
- Support a population study of the Lionfish by the Department of Biology of the UNAH Valle Sula and determine the potential for its local market.
- Implement control and surveillance activities in PAMUCH.
All support provided has been possible thanks to your involvement, each activity developed takes us closer to the thriving resource we want our future generations to enjoy.
Thank you for your help and for believing in our work.
May this holiday season be fill with joy and love!
We´ll keep you posted on how this project is developed.
