Why Ilili?

Ilili is the word for “Shark” in native Miskito language. The indigenous Miskito communities live in the eastern Caribbean coast of Honduras, one of our main field sites in Honduras.  Ilili was founded in 2020 by two female Honduran scientists.

WHAT WE DO

Our research is inclusive involving a wide range of stakeholders from artisanal fishers, government partners, local students, and citizen scientist. Our research projects currently are focused on elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) in the Caribbean of Honduras and aims to generate baseline information which can support management decisions for their protection.
