BICA HONDURAS - Enviromental Education


Our objective at BICA Roatan is to teach and show students the amazing ecosystem they live in and their active role in caring for it. We work in schools, both in the classroom and in the field, providing students of all ages with projects that improve their local environment. Our education talks include solid waste management, garbage separation, wetlands, water conservation, coral reefs, sea grass, mangroves, reef fish, and turtles.

Roots & Shoots

Considering the problem that the inadequate management of plastic represents for coastal marine ecosystems, we prioritized a campaign that seeks to generate behavioral change in students regarding the use of plastic to conserve the Mesoamerican reef from a regional perspective and linked to the global program Roots & Shoots, where students get involved, make decisions, develop skills and aptitudes, and share.

Plant a tree

As part of our reforestation program of native plants and in collaboration with the Support Roatan program, we donate a coloring book and trees to each fifth and sixth grade student of the different educational centers on the island of Roatan.

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.
