The mission of the Makengue Reserve is to conserve rainforest biodiversity through environmental research, international education, and engaging the local community.  Makengue is a 190-acre private reserve owned by Becki Cohn-Vargas and Rito Vargas,  located along the Pocosolito River that feeds into the San Juan River in southern Nicaragua along the border with Costa Rica. Accessible only by boat, the off-grid private reserve has no neighbors and is a safe haven for many endangered species: howler, white-face, and spider monkeys, jaguars, alligators, toucans, parrots and a rainbow of orchids and butterflies.
