Environmental issues in Guatemala

Guatemala is one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world with 14 different eco-regions, from sub-tropical forests to soaring volcanoes, jungles and beaches. However, these areas face threats from over-exploitation of natural resources. Many wildlife species such as sea turtles are threatened by environmental pollution and contamination, whilst other animals such as rare birds and monkeys fall prey to poaching.
