BICA Guanaja's work is done at the schools in the classroom and in the field.  Students of all ages participate in projects that improve their local environment.  Themes range from: solid waste, garbage separation, wetlands, water, coral reefs, sea grass, mangroves, reef fish, turtles, and others.  The primary goal is to teach and show students the amazing ecosystem they live in and their active role in taking care of it.

We are committed to environmental education and community awareness as fundamental pillars of our mission. We recognize that caring for the environment is essential for the health and well-being of communities, as well as for the preservation of biodiversity and ecosystems. Through our educational activities, such as talks, eco-film screenings and guided tours of places of environmental interest, we seek to foster greater awareness of the importance of natural resource conservation. By empowering people to become active advocates for their natural environment, we contribute to building a more sustainable and resilient future.


Environmental Education Talk

Information sessions to raise awareness about the environment and conservation. Taught by experts, they address topics such as biodiversity, climate change and sustainable practices. It aims to increase understanding and motivate action to protect natural resources.

We believe that increasing the public's understanding of environmental issues is critical to promoting the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.

Explorations of natural ecosystems guided by environmental experts. They offer detailed information about flora, fauna and geology, allowing participants to appreciate the beauty and importance of nature.

We recognize the importance of connecting people with nature and educating them about biodiversity and conservation to foster a greater appreciation and protection of ecosystems.


Events that combine the screening of environmental films with educational activities and discussions. They address issues such as biodiversity conservation and climate change, promoting reflection and action in favor of the environment.

Cinema is a powerful tool for inspiring and educating people about environmental issues, which can lead to positive changes in behavior and attitude towards environmental conservation.

Founded in 1990 by concerned citizens, the Bay Islands Conservation Association (BICA) is a grassroots organization dedicated to safeguarding the future well-being of the Bay Islands, Honduras. It is a private, non-profit entity coordinating and initiating efforts to protect the islands' delicate natural resources. To effectively carry out its operations, BICA has established three strategically located chapters on each island—Utila, Roatan, and Guanaja. Additionally, it has recently expanded to Tampa, FL, where it has obtained official 501c3 status to facilitate donations from interested individuals and groups.
With over 30 years of experience, BICA has successfully implemented various programs and projects in the Bay Islands, focusing on environmental education, community development, protection, and research & monitoring. Since 1994, BICA has entered into a co-management agreement with the Institute of Forestry Conservation and Wildlife (ICF) to jointly manage the marine and terrestrial protected areas in the Bay Islands of Honduras.
