Tegucigalpa, June 13, 2019.
This day an important meeting was held between authorities of ICF, CIAT and IHCIETI in order to draw a road map in their activities leading to the elaboration of a proposal for the benefit of environmental and heritage protection within the Honduran jungle, in the Biosphere of the Rio Platano.
The participants outlined a series of actions with a mediated effect that will be part of the proposal that the Commissioner for Climate Change will present to the European Union.
Among the relevant topics discussed is the development of forest status monitoring technologies which include the improvement of navigation systems and visual data capture in unmanned aircraft and drones. The training of park guards and inspectors of national heritage was also discussed as part of the initiative.
These tasks hope to see its fruit in the near future for the benefit of the environment of the biosphere reserve area and its inhabitants.
The legendary Ciudad Blanca, a mysterious place sought by Spanish conquerors and modern explorers, was discovered in the Biosphere of the Rio Platano in the Honduran Mosquitia.
All this happens until the 21st century, where explorers with the use of space technology located the archaeological site that we know as Ciudad Blanca, a virgin city with numerous objects and relics of an unknown culture that had been sought since the time of the Spanish conquest.
In 2012 this myth became a reality, so that the President of Honduras, Lawyer Juan Orlando Hernandez, gave the name of “KAHA KAMASA” (which means Ciudad Blanca in Pech language), to the three hidden pre-Columbian sites in the Mosquitia, the jungle region of the eastern coast of the country.
An aerial expedition through the dense jungle detected for the first time three sectors, which when discovered by the scientists named them T1, T2 and T3.
