  • Kekoldi is surrounded by popular tourist destinations. The nearby towns have been developing quickly to accommodate the large demand by tourists. While being an indigenous territory, Kekoldi has stayed outside the development of the tourist platform, but their habitants are concerned that legislations will change in the future to allow investors to come into the territory to build resorts.

    • By implementing a comprehensive biodiversity monitoring program alongside other projects, we are able to not only prove the environmental health of the jungle and protect it better, but also document these facts to eventually use it in case of need to prove the importance of conserve this territory against the tourism industry.

    

    • As well as this we also give support to other important projects that were being carried out prior to our partnership, but that the community didn’t had the human resource to implement. Like the Migratory raptors project and the Bushmaster ecology project.

The best way to show everyone how good my experience with GVI Jalova was is to state some facts. When I signed up for the program, I was doubting to go for 2 or 3 months. Eventually I signed up for 4. I ended up sticking around for more than 2 years. I gained many skills in wildlife identification ...
