Increased poaching of valuable hardwood species and fauna is impacting Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve, the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve and Balamku State Reserve in Mexico. Poaching is controlled by powerful Mexican syndicates, penetrating the Green Corridor between Guatemala and Mexico. In response, the project will: 1) strengthen patrolling/law enforcement in frontier protected areas; 2) increase awareness about IWT; 3) propel effective legal frameworks; 4) advance sustainable livelihoods in Guatemalan and Mexican communities; and 5) consolidate a binational network for long-term collaboration.
