Central America has diverse ecosystems varying from tropical forests, subtropical forests, mountains, grasslands, mangroves, and wetlands. This region is home to thousands of plant, bird, reptile, mammal, and amphibian species. Some of these species do not exist anywhere else in the world.
Unfortunately, deforestation is threatening the flora and the fauna of Central America. The primary drivers of deforestation in Central America include illegal logging, poaching, mining, and the expansion of farming and grazing. Even protected areas in this region, experience high rates of poaching and deforestation.
Eden Reforestation Projects is in the process of launching the Central America reforestation project with Honduras and Nicaragua as our starting nations. With local leadership in place and several communities selected for the launch, Eden will soon begin restoration efforts within this much-needed region. By engaging with local community leaders and farmers, Eden will implement projects that provide both reforestation and livelihood opportunities for impoverished households through our “Employ to Plant” methodology.
Join us as we work towards launching the work in Honduras and Nicaragua.
