Implementation of community monitoring for biodiversity in the Zoque Jungle-Sumidero Canyon Complex

As part of the implementation Community Forestry Monitoring Protocol, developed by the AMBIO Cooperative and with the support of the US Forest Service, different activities have been developed, starting with the Presentation of the Protocol with the communities located within the Zoque Jungle-Sumidero Canyon Complex. Likewise, activities have been carried out to strengthen the capacities of the population under a methodology focused on the gender perspective, which supports the inclusion of vulnerable groups in field activities.

For this presentation of the Protocol, there was a broad participation of the communities, which allowed the integration of community monitors' teams. These were trained in the awareness and adequate use of their natural resources, in the application of methodologies for biodiversity monitoring and the use of tools for forest measurement, all of which for the monitoring of biodiversity.

With this activity, wildlife was monitored, registering four migratory species of birds. One of these has nesting activities in the area. It is important to point out the participation of four women in the different teams of community monitors has been achieved, so involvement of all the members of the community will continue to be encouraged.
