KIYOCAYO is a USA-based GeoCOMPASS.CENTER Operations Group terrestrial conservation, exploration & biodiversity research extension facilitated by the Tropical Rainforest Institute of Belize ECO-Systems (TRIBZ.ECO) & the IKI.XI YAKU TAN-I Community Conservation Cooperative to warrant the revival of endangered rainforest species such as the Yucatan howler monkey.
What is KIYOCAYO
KIYO is an IKI.XI YAKU TAN-I tone that transliterates as monkey or baboon. KIYO is also rooted in the tone KAYA which transliterates as perpetual abundance, rainforest-community, or biodiversity. Among the IKI.XI YAKU TAN-I Society, monkeys/baboons, are viewed as sacred beings and comparative examples of nature's highly organized biodiversity.
Spirit of the Howler Monkey
KIYOCAYO GeoCOMPASS.CENTER has adopted the Yucatan Black Howler Monkey as our spirit totem. The Yucatan Black Howler Monkey is an international celebrity and distinguished resident of the Cayo rainforest community. Its distinctive howl holds the Guinness book of records title as the loudest land animal on Earth. We use the Yucatan Black Howler Monkey's call as an example to raise our voices and advocate against the deforestation and exploitation of Belizean lands and natural resources. #GOHowlers
Compassion Rules Our Compass
Our GeoCOMPASS is an essential device for exploring and pathfinding new ways toward conscientious continuity. It represents our compassion for protecting
& conserving our planetary ecosystems...
The tropical rainforest biomes throughout the tiny nation of Belize generate a large portion of the Earth's oxygen, water aquifers, and biodiversity, including flora used to develop new pharmaceutical breakthroughs and fauna, including insects, reptiles, mammals, birds, etc. Limited financial and technical resources administered by the Government of Belize (GOB) and subsequent inadequacies in staffing, transportation, equipment, and professional capacity make government-managed conservation and protected area security efforts an impossible challenge without the mobilization of local communities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
KIYOCAYO GeoCOMPASS orients marginalized indigenous communities toward new emerging opportunities in Terrestrial Ecosystem Conservation & Protection Services (TECOPS) to answer ever-increasing demands for qualified biodiversity science and security professionals throughout the Centro-America/CARICOM region and the world. Throughout antiquity, the exploration and conservation of nature have remained an integral part of the biocultural archive of indigenous peoples. Case studies have revealed the success of integrative community conservation programs and how they can play a critical role in future climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies throughout the region.
The initiative recognizes every citizen of Planet Earth as a significant stakeholder in this innovative collaboration. All we ask for is your swift action in helping us secure donations, conservation land grants, funding partnerships, in-kind contributions, sponsorships, and endorsements to assist us in protecting and conserving Belize's critical terrestrial ecosystems.
