Photography: tropical forests of Caribbean Guatemala

Landscape photographs capturing the beauty of a nature reserve’s tropical forests, mangroves and lagoons

These tropical forests, along the coral fringed coast between Guatemala and Belize in Central America, is protected thanks to conservationists from FUNDAECO. It’s a network of lagoons – home to manatees, dolphins and neotropical otters – with mangroves lining the waterways and creeks.

This reserve is co-run by FUNDAECO and the Sarstún Temash Institute for Indigenous Management; part of FUNDAECO’s mission is to help indigenous communities reclaim ownership of their traditional lands and to make sure that these rights are recognised within Guatemalan law, while at the same time creating conditions and resources to protect the environment.
