ATI - NNT, Mission Statement

ATI - NNT stands for Biological Research in BOSAWAS and Indio Maiz. We are newly estabilishing, small conservation initiative with the intention to provide research opportunities to scientists and adventurers to explore and document the wildlife in Nicaragua.

BOSAWAS  in the northern part of Nicaragua is a hilly tropical forest designated in 1997 as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. At aproximately 20,000 KM2 in size, the reserve comprises about 15 per cent of the nation`s total land area, making it the second largest rainforest in the Western Hemisphere, after the Amazon in Brasil. BOSAWAS is largely unexplored and rich in biodiversity. 

Indio Maiz Biological Reserve measures about 4,500 KM2 and is situated on the southeastern corner of Nicaragua bordering San Juan River. It is the second largest expanse of lowland rainforest reserve in Nicaragua and is referred to as ''the gem of Central America nature reserves''   by UCLA, bilogists. Indio Maiz is rich in biodiversity, it holds a higher number in species of trees, birds, and Insects than all of Europe.

Our Aim is to locally guarantee the protection of these areas and globally encourage the protection of biodiversity. In order to promote nature conservation and research, we combine science with education through our research and public awareness program.

Therefore ATI-NNT proposes a variety of customized trips that could be of help for research biologists, university students, or any adventurer who would like to perfom The Best Treks in Central America as well as to experience baseline field research, monitoring and documenting the biodiversity of Nicaragua.
