Ometepe: Island of Hope for Endangered Parrots


Since 2013 One Earth has been working on the island of Ometepe, Nicaragua, gaining partners as we go, including the LOCOs and Flora y Fauna Internacional, and helpful lending of climbers and expertise from Paso Pacifico. Our main goal was to find out where the parrots were, and in what numbers. We discovered that they are on this island in high numbers, perhaps the highest density of anywhere in their range. They are treasure.
