In 2012 13, the expeditions are operating in 11 countries: Indonesia, Honduras, Egypt, Cuba, South Africa, Mozambique, Peru, Madagascar, Guyana, Mexico and Romania. In each country, a long-term agreement is signed with a partner organisation (e.g. ICF in Honduras, Fund Amazonia in Peru, Wildlife Ecological Investments in South Africa, Nature and Science Foundation in Egypt, Fundatia ADEPT in Romania) and, over the course of this agreement, it is hoped to achieve a survey and management development programme at each of the sites. Occasionally, a competent local partner organisation is not available. In these cases, Operation Wallacea mentors the formation of a new NGO (Non-governmental organization) comprising local staff who have provided successful input to the expedition surveys (e.g. Lawane Ecotone for the Indonesian (indonesia) forest, Lembaga Alam for the Indonesian (indonesia) marine sites and Expediciones y Servicios Ambientales de Cusuco for the Honduran (honduras) cloud forests (cloud forest)).

In 2003 Operation Wallacea's success in Indonesia attracted the attention of NGO (Non-governmental organization)'s in Honduras. The result was the creation of new research sites in both the cloud forests of mainland Honduras and the coral reef clad islands of los Cayos Cochinos (cayos cochinos). Since then, expeditions have been set up in nine more countries, with the number of sites visited each year now totalling 25.

Opwall scientists at a number of forest sites (Indonesia, Mexico, Honduras, Madagascar, Guyana) are currently collecting vital baseline data on carbon content so that REDD Scheme (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) funding applications can be made. This will help bring much needed economic benefits to the local communities whilst also encouraging a reduction in deforestation and the associated biodiversity protection that comes with that. thumb 175px right Girls outside new San Ramón class room in 1999.

Location ''Les Saintes'' is a territory of the northern hemisphere situated in North America, in the Caribbean islands, between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator.

The '''Honduran white bat''' (''Ectophylla alba'') has snow white fur and a yellow nose and ears. It is tiny, only 3.7-4.7cm long. The only member of the genus '''''Ectophylla''''', it is found in Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and western Panama at elevations from sea level to 700 m. It feeds at least in part on fruit. Description The male is 35 cm long and weighs 225 g; the smaller female is 28 cm long and weighs 125 g. The wings are very long. Adult males are mainly black with a chestnut head and rump and a tail which is bright yellow apart from two dark central feathers. The iris is blue and the long bill (beak) is whitish. Females are similar (Sexual dimorphism), but smaller and duller than males. Young birds are duller than adults and have brown eyes. The populations south of an area around the border of Honduras and Nicaragua are sometimes separated as a subspecies ''P. w. ridgwayi'', but the separation of this form has been questioned. goals2 stadium Estadio Francisco Morazán San Pedro Sula, Honduras attendance 2,863 referee Elmar Rodas (GUA (Guatemala)) goals2 Ruben Gamboa 61' stadium Estadio Nilmo Edwards La Ceiba, Honduras attendance 2,407 referee Vinicio Mena (CRC (Costa Rica)) goals2 Ricardo Valenzuela 4' stadium Estadio Tiburcio Carías Andino Tegucigalpa, Honduras attendance 1,128 referee Jose Angel Rodriguez (PAN (Panama)) goals2 César Alegría 37' stadium Estadio Francisco Morazán San Pedro Sula, Honduras attendance 5,057 referee Walter Queseda (CRC (Costa Rica)) goals2 stadium Estadio Nilmo Edwards La Ceiba, Honduras attendance 5,384 referee Roberto Moreno (PAN (Panama)) goals2 stadium Estadio Tiburcio Carías Andino Tegucigalpa, Honduras attendance 5,370 referee Joel Aguilar (ELS (El Salvador)) goals2 Luciano Emilio 5' Luciano Emilio 66' stadium Estadio Nilmo Edwards La Ceiba, Honduras attendance 7,915 referee Walter Quesada (CRC (Costa Rica)) goals2 stadium Estadio Tiburcio Carías Andino Tegucigalpa, Honduras attendance 4,766 referee Carlos Batres (GUA (Guatemala)) goals2 César Alegría 61' stadium Estadio Nilmo Edwards La Ceiba, Honduras attendance 1,245 referee Joel Aguilar (ELS (El Salvador)) goals2 stadium Estadio Tiburcio Carías Andino Tegucigalpa, Honduras attendance referee Carlos Batres(GUA (Guatemala)) penalties1 Danilo Tosello: missed Arnold Cruz: scored Juan Pedro Yalet: Shane Moody-Orio saved Mynor Figueroa: missed The '''Montezuma Oropendola''' (''Psarocolius montezuma'') is a New World tropical icterid (Icteridae) bird.

Campbell) & Smith (E.N. Smith) (2000). Campbell and Lamar (2004) recognize this species, as well as a ninth addition to the genus: ''B. supraciliaris (Bothriechis supraciliaris)'', which was first described by Taylor (1954) as a subspecies of ''B. schlegelii'', and is found in southwestern Costa Rica. *'''Delete''' per nom.

It is also called '''"Yellow-bellied Trogon"''', but as it is not the only trogon with a yellow belly this should be avoided. It breeds in lowlands from Honduras south to western Ecuador and northern Argentina. Florence Haden, realizing the potential of the cultivar, reported its success to the Florida State Horticultural Society, and sent two specimens of the fruit to the United States Department of Agriculture, and another larger mango to Edward Simmonds of the Plant Introduction Station (Chapman Field (Miami)) at Miami. http: fcit.usf.edu florida docs m mangos.htm Simmonds was immediately intrigued and eventually took up propagating the 'Haden' in south Florida. 'Haden' became a big commercial success, largely due to its large-scale propagation by nursery-owner George Cellon, and would dominate the mango industry in the state for roughly 25 years Commons:Category:Honduras wikipedia:Honduras

of industrialization. Under the stimulus of the newly formed Central American Common Market, Nicaragua achieved a certain degree of specialization in processed foods (food processing), chemicals, and metal manufacturing. By the end of the 1960s, however, import substitution industrialization as a stimulus for economic growth had been exhausted. The 1969 Football War between Honduras and El Salvador, two members of the CACM, effectively suspended attempts at regional integration until 1987, when the Esquipulas II agreement was signed. By 1970 the industrial sector was undergoing little additional import substitution, and the collapse of the CACM meant that Nicaragua's economic growth, which had come from the expanding manufacturing sector, halted. Furthermore, the manufacturing firms that had developed under the tariff protection of the CACM were generally high-cost and inefficient; consequently, they were at a disadvantage when exporting outside the region. *Louis Rukeyser, 73, business and economics expert, multiple myeloma.

Honduras

'''Honduras''' ( The country is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea.

Honduras was home to several important Mesoamerican cultures, most notably the Maya (Maya civilization), prior to being conquered by Spain (Spanish colonization of the Americas) in the sixteenth century. The Spanish introduced Roman Catholicism and the now predominant Spanish language, along with numerous customs that have blended with the indigenous culture. The country became independent in 1821 and has since been a republic, although it has consistently endured much social strife and political instability, remaining one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere.

Honduras spans an area of about 112,492 km² and has a population exceeding 8 million. Its northern portions are part of the Western Caribbean Zone, as reflected in the area's demographics and culture. Honduras is known for its rich natural resources, including various minerals, coffee, tropical fruit, and sugar cane, as well as for its growing textiles industry, which serves the international market.
