Guatemala is an entrancing country of extremes – with its spectacular active volcanoes, dusky and diverse forests and complex historical and cultural heritage; it is an ideal gap year or year out destination. It is a place steeped in the mystique of the indigenous people that have existed here for millions of years, and its flora and fauna are as wild and untamed as its complicated history. Its forests and beaches contain some of the most intriguing wildlife found on earth, and it is known to be a place of astounding biodiversity. Its animal inhabitants include the charming sea turtles that glide through the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean, and nest on Guatemala’s beaches as they have done since the dawn of time. However their population numbers are tragically falling due to threats inflicted by humans, particularly as a result of the increased demand on the illegal black market. Join this incredible project and contribute to the fight to protect these charismatic creatures.
