Kanahau diaries has been set up as a way of the volunteers of Kanahau to share their experiences. There will be the odd blog posted via the management, however most blogs will be written and posted by the volunteers here to provide an uncensored view of what it is like working at Kanahau. We hope this helps potential volunteers make a well-informed decision about organizing their volunteer placements.

What is Kanahau?

Kanahau was started to promote research into the flora and fauna of Utila. Their work includes monitoring the population of the Ctenosaura bakeri (the islands critically endangered endemic iguana), cataloging the bat species and investigating the insect diversity of this island. They also have ongoing studies with the islands snakes, mammals and fungi. 
Last year Kanahau teamed up with Coral View Research Center to offer marine research options.
This year they are expanding their educational outreach and environmental awareness programs, so are particularly looking for student teachers, classroom assistants and education professionals.
