WCS Honduras-Nicaragua


Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) has more than 20 years working in Honduras and Nicaragua, developing actions from the regional program of WCS Mesoamerica and the Caribbean. In 2018 it was established as a binational program working specifically for these countries and consolidated as WCS Honduras-Nicaragua. Since then, permanent activities are developed for the conservation of the natural landscape of La Moskitia, increasing actions in coordination with national and community authorities.

As Moskitia confronts multiple challenges, indigenous communities are leading conservation efforts through collaborative projects.
