Institut de Tolède pour le développement et l'environnement (TIDE)

Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE) partners with local communities to promote sustainable income generation and co-management of both forest and marine resources in the Maya Mountain Marine Corridor, a conservation area covering approximately 739,650 acres of land and the equivalent of 100,000 acres of sea.

From its volunteer-led beginning, TIDE has grown to include about 30 full-time staff members. The organization works with communities across three main program areas: education and outreach, resource protection, and research and monitoring. Additionally, TIDE has established an ecotourism venture to provide revenue for its work and to support the development of alternative livelihoods for community members. The group also organizes activities such as beach clean-ups and community fire management training, with a target audience comprising 12 coastal and inland communities, for a total of more than 10,000 people.
