Nicaraguan Animal Guide
With this online animal guide ViaNica.com tries to offer a comprehensive collection of animal information including photos, names, descriptions, and distribution details. The guide has been set up with the support of animal experts, natural reserves, and other collaborators. The goal is to have a complete animal guide of all of Nicaragua's wildlife. We know that this will be quite a challenge, but by every animal we add we come a little closer and we hope that some day, with the support of other enthusiasts, we can complete this animal guide.
This guide could not have been set up without the support of many people and organizations who provided photos, information, knowledge, and above all time and effort to help us build this guide. Our special thanks go out to several people who have made some great contributions to the animal guide. Among them are insect identifier Jean Michel Maes, book writers Robert Ridgely and Gunther Koehler, tireless animal enthusiast Silvana Rivera, bird experts Pomares Salmeron and José Manuel Zolotoff, marine specialists José María Vides and Regine Herzog, and the general department of the Ministry of Natural Resources, MARENA. We thank these as well as all other people who have made a contribution to the guide, and we hope to continue receiving your much appreciated support!
