Become a part of the community that is striving to protect the forests of Montaña de Santa Bárbara. There are a number of ways that you can do this: come and visit, volunteer, make a donation, share our story with you friends, or connect us with people that you think might want to contribute.
We are currently developing our payment facilities. In the meantime, if you are keen to contribute, contact Robert Lambeck (email@example.com) and we will provide details for wiring or direct debiting into the project account.
Sure, this is a great place to visit for an adventure, but if you have the time and desire to really make a difference, you can spend time as a volunteer in one of our friendly communities. But beware! You won’t be the first to think that you have come for a short stay only to find that the charms of Honduras and its people may weave a web that holds you here for longer than you expect!
We're looking for people who share our philosophy and can bring skills and experience in the areas of:
• community capacity building
• guide training
• marketing and communications
• teaching English
• introductory computing
• biological survey and monitoring
• integrated conservation planning
• sustainable agriculture
• environmental education and engagement for children
In exchange for your contribution, we will cover the costs of food and board.
Our preference is for volunteers who are prepared to dedicated at least a month to the project.
Help to build our networks
If you know of individuals, institutions or funding bodies that may be able to help us, send us their details with personal contacts, or direct them to our project. We're keen to build the team and its capacity, so any connections that you would like to share would be more than welcome!
We are keen to ensure that everything we do is underpinned by science and that we are able to demonstrate that we are making a differences. We would welcome interest from universities or other research organisations, and students wanting to do post-graduate studies.
Potential research areas include:
- Biological Survey (we have very little knowledge about the basic biology of the region)
- Conservation planning
- Forest management
- Sustainable agriculture
- Carbon sequestration and other payments for ecosystem services
- Participatory community engagement
- Incentive mechanisms for driving landuse change.
