Wildlife has been helped by you!

Just a quick update from our programs in Central America. The "winter" months are busy ones with nesting parrots, a final pulse of nesting green sea turtles, Jr. Ranger graduation events, birding events, monitoring of willow flycatchers in wetland habitats, and the monitoring migratory birds at our two bird-banding stations.

Our community rangers and wildlife technicians continue twice-weekly monitoring of primate populations in Nicaragua, and in doing so, are helping to deter hunting. Forest mammals like agoutis help to disperse and germinate seeds and keep the forest ecosystem healthy. Your support for our monitoring work makes this possible.

In El Salvador, a community ranger climbs a steep mountain every week to check on the allusive primates that live in that forest, while a team of community community rangers share conversations in the community to promote the value of wildlife for tourism to their area. 

Your donations go directly to these activities and to protecting and managing small private reserves like the Mono Bayo Reserve in Nicaragua and El Salvador where we have recently placed a deposit on a 100 acre property that can serve as a conservation hub for education and forest restoration in the community. 

We look forward to the start of rainy season in the coming days when we will shift our focus to planting tree seedlings from our nursery and protecting sea turtle nest numbers that increase from June to October. 

Thank you for supporting Paso Pacifico!
