Nature and Reforestation VolunteeringDo you desire to save nature? You can effectively do so by signing up for reforestation work abroad in the most beautiful central American country of Guatemala Deforestation and land use change largely a result of the clearing of land for cattle ranching and agriculture are some of the major environmental issues facing Latin America in general and Guatemala in particular.
As an international volunteer some of your placements will be with organizations that are working towards protecting the environment and also promoting environmental consciousness among local people. Overseas volunteers will work at the nursery, collecting seeds, filling soil bags, weeding the seedlings, planting and raising trees of local species such as alder, cypress, pine and eucalyptus.
