Monkey Point, Atlántico Sur, Nicaragua Travel Video

blueEnergy in Monkey Point

This video is a taste of the work we are doing in small communities on Nicaragua's Atlantic coast. This installation was in Monkey Point, a community of 300 inhabitants. The people there live off the land and until now they had no source of electricity. This project was a succesful collaboration of international volunteers and local community activists. Pleas vote for us at www.CNN.com/Heroes to help us continue with this much needed work.

This is the home of one of the world’s most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the tallest sea mountain in the world at more than 33,000 feet (Maunakea), the most massive mountain in the world (Maunaloa) and the largest park in the state (Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). All but two of the world’s climate zones generate everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to beautiful black sand beaches. Some of Hawaii Island's most breathtaking and accessible waterfalls like Akaka Falls can be discovered along the northeastern coast of the island, along the Hilo and Hamakua Coast. In 1816, John Palmer Parker, a western rancher and advisor to Kamehameha, married royal granddaughter Kipikane and was awarded two acres of land for $10. Today it is one of the world’s largest privately-owned cattle ranches: 150,000 acres raising 30,000 head of prime Angus and Charolais beef cattle. Located on the coast of Honaunau Bay in south Kona, Puuhonua o Honaunau immerses you in Hawaiian culture. This 180-acre national historic park was once the home of royal grounds and a place of refuge for ancient Hawaiian lawbreakers. less
