In 2008, two brothers, Lucas & Travis Boychuk, at the age of 19 & 21, moved to Nicaragua to build the world’s first action sports resort. Amidst every possible challenge brought to them including police corruption and almost being killed at gun point, the two brothers successfully completed and opened the first resort. The documentary follows them from day 1 until the opening day of the first resort, and now throughout the whole process of building the 2nd Surf Ranch resort which expands over 25 acres and will be one of Nicaragua’s largest resorts. &

the illegal wildlife trade is the third biggest illegal trade in the world the first one being drugs the second being arms and third being wildlife and often they use the same traffic routes for for transporting wildlife as they do for drugs and arms I'm sorry or evil is about how many did he say he could get as many as we needed and basically we just have to tell him what you want now you'll get it it's a terrible thought for me that they were most definitely baby birds they were very very young they had just been poached out of their nest evidently these are animals that will not survive for a long time without the proper care and they were in a bag stuffed in a bag most definitely suffering it's rough to see that we're in the Grabbe right now in the only official rescue centre in Nicaragua they're animals that have been taken out of the illegal wildlife trade that happens in Nicaragua we are a group unprofitable a we create because we protect the animal fears and they are sent here as part of the process to be rehabilitated and reintroduced in the wild we've been able to establish model rescue centers in each of the Central American countries when we first started here there was only just shed with a couple of cages in the back and everything that you see here now we've been able to do in a little over a year the rescue center is actually hold and the representation of the illegal wildlife trade what we see in rescue centers is what is out there we have been working in Nicaragua since 2004 and it is one of the few countries in Central America where you still can see the illegal wildlife trade is evident on the streets and you see people selling birds that said it has improved in the past couple years and you can see a lot less people selling selling the birds we started worked with a grant from the State Department to work with rescue centers and to educate communities on the value of wildlife and keeping it wild our focus is always of course animal welfare and the idea that wildlife belongs in the wild so we work very hard at being able to curb the trade as much as possible through education the birds that we see on the side of the street they will present a lot more wildlife five Birds taken out of the wild only one survives these animals are getting prepared to be taken transported to a dilution they go through a complicated process of rehabilitation training and you have to make sure that it can be released back into the wild has to have enough strength of muscles to be able to fly in a while be able to identify the food that they can get in the wild and that has to be taught at every location it's great it's actually the success story behind all the air Desai but everybody it's a great success four-twenty – oh all the animals are gonna be released inside by this wooded area here it has access to all that biological corner I am very passionate about the wildlife program you can see the improvements in the efforts that have been made to reintroduce these animals it's nice to see that that there is fruition to the work that you do and there is results that you can see and feel and leave future generation tambien Mo's emotion porque esta parte de unprocess o de que he's very excited to see that we've been he's been talking to different people in different organizations since the 90s on rescue centers and it's great to see in the last couple of years through collaboration with organizations like Humane Society and fuzzy week where the rescue center has come to fruition and they've been able to see things like today's release where we can see the success of all the work that has been done for so many years and when you work very close with the animals and you see you can release and they are really healthy and they Jung in the in the natural thing I feel so happy
