Spectacular scenery, with smoking volcanos, deep blue lakes, crystal clear waterfalls and a mysterious aninal world - this is how Guatemala, the third largest country in Central America, presents itself to the visitor. While the mountainous southern part of the country is dotted with cloud forest, on the northern El Peten plain, tropical rain forest flourishes. It was here that, between the third and the ninth centuries, the Mayas built the most magnificent temple city in the whole of pre-Columbian America: Tikal. In the National Park which was set up here in 1955, as well as viewing the temple ruins, it is possible to observe at close quarters birds which are now becoming rare, such as parrots, toucans, trogons, woodpeckers and curassows.

Victory! Elephants, big cats, primates, and other wild animals will no longer be chained, caged, and beaten so that they’ll perform confusing and painful tricks in circuses anywhere in Guatemala.The nation has done the right thing for animals by passing a law that bans circuses from using them. The days of hauling animals around and harming them in the name of entertainment are about to end in that country.Guatemala follows Mexico, which banned the use of animals in circuses in 2015. The animal welfare legislation—which went into effect on April 11—gives circuses a year to surrender the animals to sanctuaries or wildlife rehabilitation centers, both national and international. During this time, it’s expressly forbidden for circuses to breed any wild animals.The law includes foreign traveli...
I prepared this movie for my 5th grade daughter's elective class on birds by compiling pictures after an alternative spring break to Guatemala, which included visiting the ancient Mayan city of Tikal. The movie features the sounds of birds in Tikal along with pictures of Tikal, birds and other animals and insects in Tikal and the surrounding Peten region.
