My name is Martin Murillo, I am currently part of different initiatives of both citizen science and traditional science, especially related to the study of macroinvertebrates, specifically in the field of entomology and water quality. To date, he has uploaded records from different places in Honduras.https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Alfredo_Murillo.https://www.hnbiologyinvestigation.org/quienes-somos

I need your donation to continue with the Biodiversity Study in the Municipality of Alubarén. Alubarén is located in the central part of the country, south of the department of Francisco Morazán, currently the municipality is composed of 28.15% of remnants of forest, 32.24% of pasture and crops, and 36.7% of deciduous secondary vegetation. The remaining forest is composed of Tropical Dry Forest, which is the most threatened ecosystem in Honduras, as it is currently reduced to less than 10% of its original coverage and is almost entirely outside the National System of Protected Areas. Protected Areas System (SIN APH). Swaths of dry deciduous forest ecosystems can still be found in Alubarén. An ecosystem of large trees of 30 m or more. It is commonly found in intervened fragments, on the slopes of the larger valleys, competing to a great extent with the aforementioned cultivation systems. However, even these small forest fragments are endangered, so it is urgent to record their biodiversity. To date, we have found more than 130 species, from insects to mammals. We do this together with two scientific colleagues, and to achieve the goals we use self-managed tools and equipment from Hn Biology Investigation. However, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic situation, many of us scientists have run out of funds to continue our personal research. We invite you to learn more about this project at:
