Monkey Point, Atlántico Sur, Nicaragua Travel Video

blueEnergy in Monkey Point

This video is a taste of the work we are doing in small communities on Nicaragua's Atlantic coast. This installation was in Monkey Point, a community of 300 inhabitants. The people there live off the land and until now they had no source of electricity. This project was a succesful collaboration of international volunteers and local community activists. Pleas vote for us at www.CNN.com/Heroes to help us continue with this much needed work.

The ecosystem comprises of the lake, surrounded by mainly wooded and bushy grasslands. The lake is world famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth - myriads of fuchsia pink flamingos whose numbers are legion, often more than a million - or even two million. They feed on the abundant algae, which thrives in the warm waters. Scientists reckon that the flamingo population at Nakuru consumes about 250,000 kg of algae per hectare of surface area per year. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons and other large mammals. Black and white rhinos have also been introduced. The lake's level dropped dramatically in the early 1990s but has since largely recovered. The ecosystem provides for about 56 different species of mammals and a variety of terrestrial birds numbering nearly 450 species. less

This means unlike alot of ‘resort’ islands, Magnetic caters for all budgets. More than half the Island is national park and thus wildlife such as koalas, wallabies, possums and birdlife are plentiful. I didn’t interview a local on Magnetic, I decided I would just concentrate on the natural beauty of the Island. I got some great wildlife shots and the beaches and bays are to die for. less
