Guatemala is a very diverse country when it comes to its nature. From the rainforest to jungles, rivers and oceans, mountains and volcanoes, and much more. Sadly we do not take as much care of our natural environments as much as we should. For many years I have realized how little the environment is cared for in my country. Our lakes, rivers and seas are becoming increasingly polluted. Some species in our territory have become extinct and very few people take action towards this cause. We prioritize many things before putting the planet earth in our consciences.
Throughout the years different companies or groups of people have started a movement of change. But that is not enough, less than around 10% of our population know how to take care of our environment, and what it means to take care and protect such a beautiful areas that we are blessed to live along. With the population increasing each year, we are destroying everything that’s given to us. Everything that gives us life. The world is crying out for help.
Since the pandemic began, nature was able to re flourish and become stronger as humans stayed away due to lockdowns. Positive results were seen in many different countries. The water of the rivers and seas were cleaned, the animals returned to show themselves after many years. We want that to be a forever thing and not just a momentary event.
