Introduction to the project

Corte Magore is a 29-acre island located off of the Caribbean Coast in Nicaragua. The island of Corte Magore at Hog Cay, Nicaragua, is inspired by the fictional place in the children’s picture book, Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore, by Tonia Allen Gould. is located in the Bahia de Bluefields at the mouth of the Escondido River. The "Finding Corte Magore Project" benefits the South Caribbean Autonomous Region of Nicaragua socially and environmentally by providing sustainable ingenuity and opportunity to the island.


The Finding Corte Magore (FCM) mission is to set a precedent for sustainable development in this region of Nicaragua. We aim to create awareness and prevent the destruction of pristine natural habitats in which irresponsible and negligent tourism can adversely impact these impoverished coastal communities. FCM will offer visitors the opportunity to engage in authentic cultural, experiential and ecotourism activities. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about environmental conservation as well as the ecological and cultural history of the area. They, in turn, will also be contributing to the social and educational development of the area. 



"Education is the passport to the future for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."  -Malcom X

The FCM project is designed to be an educational hub and resource for the rural Nicaraguan community with open-sourced content and engagement from researchers, scientists, students, universities and eco-tourists alike. Through content and curriculum development, we intend to engage and educate children everywhere about environmentalism through a collaborative approach to STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math education).
