Since land use around Guacimo is quickly changing from forest to cattle ranching, we see the importance of protecting its unparallel beauty, learning about the facts that challenge its survival and finding ways to overcome them.

We work in ways to enlarge the critical habitat for the species living here. The project Indio Maiz buffer corridor connects Guacimo Lodge 50 hectares of protected primary forest with the greater reserve through a corridor enabling animals to find enough feeding. It also allows protection of endangered tree species as the Mountain Almond Tree, which is essential to the survival of the Great Green Macaw.
