Project details

The Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge, which stretches down along the two rivers, Rio Cuero and Rio Salado, is part of a protected area officially recognised by Honduras. The red mangrove is among the most widespread species in the natural park. Its huge and unwieldy roots provide a refuge for a great many species: fish, molluscs, shellfish and shrimps find an ideal habitat among these branches. La Mosquitia is the biggest tropical rainforest in Honduras and covers an area of almost 17.000 square kilometres. It is sparsely inhabited and the Miskito people, the descendants of the Chibcha tribe, are the biggest ethnic group in the region. When they have to visit the urban settlements they go by canoe, exploiting the flow of the river, although these days it is not difficult to catch sight of motorised canoes. This community’s existence is totally conditioned by its relationship with nature, an essential element for the survival of the Miskito people.
