Miskito pine forests

WWF Abstract

In the pine forests along the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua and Honduras, signs of life--and the struggle to survive--are everywhere. Here, white-tailed deer depend on grassy and shrubby vegetation for food, just as pumas and jaguars depend on the deer. The landscape is shaped by numerous rivers and streams that drain the central cordillera and flow through these open pine forests. Along these waterways, otters play along the banks while numerous water birds search for insects and vegetation in the shallows.
