At the expansion site of our Communities Organizing for Watersheds project we are collaborating with our local partners to restore and protect the Uchapa and Pimienta watershed. This work has been chosen as one of ten finalists in a contest sponsored by Rare and The Nature Conservancy! Solution Search: Adapting to a Changing Climate recognizes innovative solutions related to communities adapting to a changing climate and their local environment. Our project was selected out of a field of 85 entries.
The top ten finalists are in competition for the People’s Choice Award. Two grand prize winners will receive $20,000 grants towards their project work, and two runner-ups will each receive $5,000. So please vote for us now and every day for the next ten days and help us win money towards protecting a critical watershed and habitat in northern Honduras!
Note: This contest concluded in October 2013. Thank you to everyone who voted!
