Our Mission

Our MissionWe aim to restore and protect the endangered dry tropical forest and coastal ecosystems of Mesoamerica's Pacific Slope.

Our innovative approach protects biodiversity where people already live. By working with local communities, landowners, and partner organizations, we restore and protect the habitats that form building blocks for wildlife corridors.

We began developing our first corridor in 2005 in Nicaragua’s Paso del Istmo Biological Corridor. By strengthening the Paso del Istmo and other corridors across a region-wide network, we will reconnect people and wildlife across western Mesoamerica.

Why Donate?

The problems are immense. Together, we can solve them. Your secure, tax-deductible donation will help make a significant difference in a highly vulnerable region: the Pacific Slope.

The Pacific Slope has unique habitats and dozens of threatened and endangered species. However, its widespread poverty, high population density, and severely fragmented landscape challenge normal conservation methods. Paso Pacífico's innovative programs connect people to their landscapes in ways that benefit people and nature alike.

By engaging local communities and scientific experts in every stage of our work, we develop and implement sustainable solutions that increase community well-being and economic power while reviving habitat. Our small overhead makes your donation go even further. Be part of the solution!
