Project
Xibalba Private Nature Reserve: Conservation and Restoration
Guatemala, Flores, Petén started 2020 Active Agroforestry, Conservation, Natural Forest Management, Research, Restoration, Tourism
Summary
Tree cover restoration on 31 ha of cattle pastures, plus conservation of 24 ha of secondary forest. Testing our hypothesis that in the long run, coupled with income from forestry incentive programs, such efforts will be economically more lucrative than other management schemes such as cattle ranching. Planting a variety of native, wisely chosen, regionally adapted, timber and non-timber species for future sustainable harvest ensures calculated productivity rates and decreases maintenance costs.
