Quelantaro Wildlife Reserve
Quelantaro Wildlife Reserve

We are a local organization that, since 2009, coordinates Playa Salamina and Costa Grande in Villa El Carmen, Managua, Nicaragua, protecting Leatherback, Black, and Olive Ridley turtles. This area is the most important at the national level for the conservation of Leatherbacks. Our reserve protects seventy acres of dry forest, and we also develop ecotourism activities with international volunteers who are part of the sustainable development that we carry out in the area. We develop monitoring of migratory and resident birds as well as environmental education in the coastal marine areas of the municipality and the buffer zones of the reserve. Our main strength is that we are local actors, whether or not there is a project we are in the area, we have strategic alliances that allow the development of our work in the communities and with public and private organizations in our country.

The Eastern Pacific Leatherback Turtle Conservation Network started in 2012 when over thirty researchers, NGOs, and regional experts came together to develop an action plan to stabilize and restore the leatherback turtle population in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
