Summary

This project will tackle the wildlife trafficking which is driving Honduras’s national bird, the scarlet macaw, towards local extinction. Despite existing legislation, trafficking continues rampant in the country’s last macaw stronghold, the Moskitia, where an estimated 600 individuals survive. The project’s goal is to reduce wildlife trafficking, strengthen management and enforcement of indigenous territories, and improve local livelihoods for approximately 4,200 people across 3,300 km2 of the Honduran Moskitia, by providing technical support to 11 indigenous communities, decreasing nest poaching and coordinating enforcement with government agencies.
