Conservation-Ecotourism and Human Rights





Earth’s sustainability is largely dependent on human sustainability. Wisdom, knowledge and integrity of and to our earth including land, sea and its’ inhabitants are core to our global responsibility and survivability.


The Bay Islands International Academy is a strategically located, research, education and training center focused on the study and protection of land, sea and people, the life cycle the earth’s existence. Empowering people with the knowledge and understanding of their Human Rights is the first stage in building the bridge of sustenance for the world through protection, preservation and conservation.


The Bay Islands International Academy (BIIA) mission is to educate participants in global human rights, conservation, and ecotourism and to serve as an International Conference Center. Local students, international scientists, anthropologists and human rights advocates, join together in the study, evaluation and discovery of essential methods to restore, conserve and enhance the rights of human beings, and the pristine value and sustenance of our global lands, seas and reefs. The lands in which BIIA are located are also physically and inherently scientific study areas, nature and marine parks, and land, sea and reef preservation and protection projects. 


The Bay Islands rest in the heart of the Meso-American Barrier Reef system, the second largest barrier reef in the world.  The Bay Islands and surrounding area, prime habitat to a multitude of endangered land and sea creatures are also home to several indigenous people including the Garinagu Tribe-descendents of the slave trade, Payan, Mayan and Mosquito Indians, English, Spanish, Pirate and Latin American people. Founders of the Bay Islands International Academy envisioned the value and synergy of locating the facility at the center of it’s very purpose, on land encompassed with critically pristine land, sea, reefs and inhabited with people of deep history and culture!
