Platano Forest, Honduras - North America

The Platano Forest is positioned on the Río Plátano on the Caribbean coastline of Honduras in North America. This tropical rainforest accommodates a diverse range of wildlife and plant life. Apart from this, approximately 2000 native inhabitants go on with customary ways of life in the forest areas.

This site has been a World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve since the year 1980. It was in the year 1996 that Plantano Forest was enlisted as the World Heritage in Danger but was scrapped off from the list in 2007.

Its environmental and cultural significance is in jeopardy by colonization, agriculture, and meager resource administration. A project for setting up a hydro-electric plant in the region is also being considered.
