GWC works across a diverse swath of Central America, from volcanic highlands to the Caribbean coast.

Central America, as the gateway of the Americas, has some of the most diverse groups of plants and animals. Conservation organizations have widely overlooked the conservation needs of this region, however we have brought new energy to long-term projects of local partners.

GWC and local partner Fundaeco in 2012, along with a truly international collaboration of almost 20 other organizations, created the Sierra Caral Amphibian Conservation Reserve. These 6,000 acres of montane cloud forest are home to native salamanders, Jaguars, Baird’s Tapir, and other keystone species. In 2014, Fundaeco succeeded in establishing the Sierra Caral National Protected Area, with the existing reserve providing the core of a now 47,000 acre protected area.
