Resumo: The workshop began with historical information about the work in Guatemala with crocodiles, undoubtedly standing out was the fi rst record of the species (type specimen) in 1851, and also highlighting other papers dealing with aspects of, from which could be obtained a basis for the proposed sampling in the country, through application of the four basic methods of habitat assessment and monitoring, night detection, marking and recapture of individuals, and location and monitoring of nests. It is worth noting the presence of relevant authorities in environmental issues in Guatemala, through Francisco Castañeda Moya (CECON Director), Dr. Hiram Ordoñez Chocano (CITES Scientifi c Authority and Wildlife Director for Guatemala) and Julio Madrid-Montenegro (Department of Wildlife, Peten Region VIII, CONAP), and representatives of Mexico, through two of the four coordinators of Mexico COPAN (Jerónimo Domínguez Laso and Marco Lopez Luna, Coordinators of Regions 3 and 2 respectively, COPAN Project Mexico). The offi cial launch of the fi rst national tour and offi cial count of Morelet's Crocodile Project for Guatemala, starting on the night of 23 September 2012, yielded a count of 83 crocodiles; Class I= 34; Class II= 11; Class III= 12; Class IV= 9; Class V= 6 and 11 EO (Eyes only). All crocodiles were located in 15.6 km, giving an encounter rate of 5.3 ind/km. Four potential nesting sites were also recorded, evidenced by the presence of groups of newly hatched hatchlings. Twelve specimens between 25 cm and 2.5 m TL were captured. All were in good condition. The sex ratio was 1:1. All animals were measured, and marked by scute-clipping-and thus representing the fi rst offi cially marked crocodiles in the country's database (CECON in coordination with CONAP). In conclusion, the workshop established commitments to follow up on: the establishment and formalization of a national team to monitor wild populations of Morelet's crocodile complying with all requirements for management; to systematize existing information on the species for the preparation of techinical and/or scientifi c articles and continue training with the preceding information of Morelet's crocodile in Guatemala; and to establish future meetings with authorities and specialists from Mexico, and to contribute to the continued strengthening of Guatemalan specialists and continue the bilateral relationship with the presentation of monitoring progress of the species for the program COPAN Guatemala.
