Welcome to the Yoro Biological Corridor … an initiative to link eight Honduran forest parks threatened by conventional coffee production. It’s also the first forest corridor in Honduras to submit for legal protection, which will make it the first officially protected biological corridor in Central America! The Yoro Model is a method of growing coffee that conserves forest & processing that coffee using renewable energy. It is proving a solution for effectively reversing the negative environmental impacts of conventional coffee production.
