Climate change in Latin America and environmental protection volunteers

It’s a fact. Global warming is not an if, but a when . The scientific community knows that the tipping point of no return is coming soon, how soon depends on the choices we as global community take.

Environmental conservation is key to slowing or hopefully reversing some of the effects.

 

Global warming not only affects rising ocean lines, whole ecosystems and temperatures, but it also has dire social consequences, specially on poorer countries that are ill-equipped to handle natural disasters, economic instability and resource shortages. Volunteers in our environmental program see first-hand how climate change is changing the region and are part of the change to slow it down. But how exactly does it affect Latin America?

  1. Natural disasters: Climate is becoming more and more extreme .Hurricanes, floods, droughts, and more. This is not exclusive to Latin America, but most countries in the region don’t have effective plans on how to deal with these disasters and in turn this causes food shortages, displaced populations, water related illnesses and rise in vermin.

  2. The seasons: A lot of small traditional farmers rely on the predictability of seasons to time their crops. Global warming is creating more unpredictable weather, causing a myriad of problems for small farmers that don’t have irrigation systems or any tools of industrialized farming. Volunteers working with small farmers are working on ways to protect small farmers against this.

  3. Extreme temperatures: Some areas that are already very hot during the summer are becoming dangerously hot. This becomes a bigger issue when a lot of the people in those areas work as farmers and spend most of their day outdoors. Also this contributes to destroying their crops.

  4. Deepening the wealth gap: Because the already poor people get the worse consequences of climate change, the wealth gap gets bigger, causing more social instability.

  5. Migration: Because of this rising wealth gap , climate change is creating massive immigration of people looking for better opportunities in other countries, in turn creating refugees of a sort.

Climate change is the hands of everyone and only a coordinated effort can help mitigate the problem.

Climate change is the hands of everyone and only a coordinated effort can help mitigate the problem.

Volunteers working in the environmental conservation.

program work towards more sustainable forestry practices, sustainable tourism and environmental education. The education aspect has the longest lasting impact on the population, as it teaches them how manage their resources in a more responsible way.

Also, at home there are many ways to reduce your footprint on the earth like buying less, repairing more, re-using, supporting environmentally friendly companies , eating less meat and making small conscious decisions. We realize the act of air travel does also create a carbon footprint, so try to keep air travel meaningful.

How to make Guacamole, The Guatemalan way.


A big part of traveling abroad is eating the local food. Eating local, is a great way to get to know the culture as well. One of the favorite recipes of volunteers that come to Guatemala is Guacamole A.K.A “GUAC” , to make some good old finger-lickin’ Guatemalan style Guacamole all you have to do is this:

The ingredients:

8 ripe avocados. How to know if they are ripe? Check this guide out.

1 white onion

3 lemons

1 teaspoon of Salt

1 spoon of oregano

1 spoon of pepper

¼ cup of parsley

This makes a bowl for four

  1. Cut the avocados and put them in a bowl.Keep one of the seeds!
  2. Smash all the avocados with a fork until the textures is nice and creamy
  3. Dice onions and add to the bowl.
  4. Cut lemons and mix in juice.
  5. Dice parsley leaves and add in to the bowl.
  6. Add oregano ,pepper and salt.

Tip: add in one of the seeds (whole)of the avocados to help the Guacamole stay fresh , this is because the seed releases essentials oils that prevent the Guacamole turning brown.

Other ingredients you can try with your Guac:

-Mayonnaise to make it creamier

-Cayenne pepper

-Garlic Salt

-Diced tomato

Seasons in Central America

Winter. Spring. Summer.Fall. Repeat. Right?

 

In Central America seasons are less extreme and are not so clearly defined as most year weather seems to be mild and the temperature difference is not as polarized as in northern countries or countries in the extreme south. In Central America we have two main seasons : Dry Season and Rainy Season.

Dry Season:

The dry season runs from early November to mid May. During this season very rarely does it rain and clear skies reign from November-February. March and April become the hottest months of the year.

Rainy Season:

This season runs from about Mid May-To Mid or late October. Most mornings are clear and dry and most afternoons it will rain. Most torrential weather is around July to September.

Most volunteers come to Central America expecting hot and muggy weather, while this is true for a large section of the region certain places in Guatemala and Costa Rica have cooler weather. In fact most of our programs in Guatemala are in the Western Highlands where it can get quite chilly at night and early mornings. Also Guatemala and Costa Rica are very mountainous making the variation in weather quite drastic sometimes. In one day you can be in the muggy hot mangroves and in a few hours on cold mountains sipping hot chocolate.

Here’s an average for year :

Volunteer Teaching English

Teaching English is becoming a more vital skill in Guatemala and Costa Rica as the countries become a bigger and bigger part of the traveler’s bucket list. This means that someone who can speak English will have a huge advantage over someone who can’t when it comes to getting a job in the future. Private schools in Guatemala and Costa Rica already offer a great English education but, the national, rural schools don’t, leaving their graduates on the back foot when it comes to being competitive in the jobs market. By offering your skills as a native English speaker and/or trained teacher, you can really impact on a child’s future in Guatemala or Costa Rica. To check out what our teaching English program is really like, take a look at this volunteer’s video diary below. Once you are convinced, sign up with our short, online application form.

In my blog back in October, I spoke in depth about the amazing opportunity to work in micro finance organisations in both Guatemala and Costa Rica, and more recently, I wrote about three high school students who volunteered in micro finance in Guatemala and how good their experience was. We talk a lot about our micro finance volunteering and internship opportunities because they are really sort after and fantastic opportunities to really make a difference. Not everyone has the opportunity to learn about how to run a business, yet it is what they rely on to make a living; which is where you come in! If you have business expertise and a passion to help others, then this is definitely where you should spend your time and resources volunteering! Not convinced? Take a look at this video and see if our previous volunteers can’t convince you! When you are ready to sign up then take a look at our website and fill in our short, online application form.

Turtle Conservation volunteering, Guatemala

Turtle Conservation Volunteering Guatemala

Turtles are very close to extinction which is why it is vital we have volunteers heading to our turtle conservation projects in Guatemala. Our turtle conservation volunteers work with local biologists to assist in turtle studies and protection work along the beautiful beaches of Guatemala. As a volunteer, you would live in basic conditions, working day and night, work including: beach patrols, building hatcheries, protecting and burying eggs and beach cleaning, amongst other things. It is a really rewarding and frankly vital volunteering experience. Unsure? Then take a look at this video of our previous volunteers spending time volunteering on a turtle project in Guatemala. After this, you can take a look at our website and get applying through our short, online application form. See you on the beach!

What to pack – a guide to preparing for your adventure!

[h4a]“He who would travel happily must travel light.” – Antoine de St. Exupery[/h4a]

Once you sign up for your volunteering adventure with INLEXCA you will be given an extensive packing list to help you prepare for your particular project, location and service. However, when preparing to travel it can be tempting to get all the latest gadgets and fill your bag with travel essentials that once you get traveling, you end up just stuffing into the bottom of your bag and forgetting! The best advice we can give you is pack light, here are some top tips to help you pack light!

1. Keep all your important documents in one place

You will be carrying a lot of important documents with you when you travel. Passport, visa, residency, travel insurance, flight information and more. So, make sure you have one bag or folder for all this information and keep it together. No one wants to be in the airport pulling everything out of their bag looking for their passport!

Keep only your travel essentials in your carry on, the things to entertain you on the plane.

2. Prepare your carry-on

Your carry-on needs to hold the essential things you need for the flight and nothing more! Don’t use it as a place to carry extra things for your travels, if it doesn’t fit in your backpack, don’t take it! Use your carry on for your travel documents plus your entertainment, a book, an e-reader, your iPad, whatever you need to pass the long-haul flight you are taking!

3. Lay out all your clothes, then leave half behind

Lay out your clothing then chuck half of it away, it’s extra weight you will never use

We always pack too many clothes whenever we go on holiday! If you are just going to a resort or hotel it doesn’t really matter but, when you have to carry all your clothes on your back, every item will matter! The strict rule is lay out all the clothes you want to take then throw half of them away. Do it. You will thank me later.

Take a good sized toiletry bag that fits all your essentials

4. Toiletry bag

You will need a toiletry bag and this will probably be the heaviest single item you have to carry. Don’t bring lots of perfumes when deodorant will do. Be strict with yourself and only bring really essential items that you can’t live without. If there are two similar things in there, take one out.

A hairdryer and striaightner
Don’t take either.

4. Hair dryer or straighteners?

Neither is the right answer of course. At home, drying and straightening your hair seems so important. But, when traveling, it loses all importance and is replaced with experiences, people you meet, places you go. You don’t need to style your hair, just buy a headscarf! And don’t even talk about make-up. Ever.

5. Shoes or boots?

Never take boots with you traveling, they are heavy and you won’t use them

Shoes. Always. Unfortunately we are not all hobbits so we can’t get away with no shoes at all, otherwise we would! But, boots are just too heavy to even consider traveling with so don’t! And keep to a minimum number of shoes as well, most travelers live in one pair of flip flops so don’t bother taking much more than that!

6. Which camera?

Just one. Just one camera is enough. Trust me. Take one good camera that takes good enough photos for you to show to friends and family when you get home and keep as memories but no more. If your phone has a camera then that is the one you use, any more than that and you are wasting weight.
