Beaks and Peaks support a number of conservation and development projects in Honduras by including those programmes into their wildlife tours.

One of the projects they work with is La Fuente de Vida, an ecotourism and conservation project in the Santa Bárbara mountains near Lake Yojoa. It is aimed at providing the local communities with an alternative source of income based on ecotourism so they no longer solely depend on coffee production and can start protecting the mountain forests instead of cutting it down for coffee growing. The communities offer several trip packages, serve food, offer accommodation and have created trails to show visitors the natural beauty of their local environment.

Another project Beaks and Peaks support is the Hospitality Training from Casa Hotel Celaque. The hotel works together with the local Vida Abundante college to teach youngsters the ins and outs of hospitality and tourism so they can create a future for themselves in this promising new sector for Honduras.

Furthermore, they work with birdwatching clubs such as the Tanunas from Gracias in order to show children and youngsters the importance and beauty of their environment, and hope that some of them may even take an interest in guiding themselves to pass on the legacy.
