CVG provides a space for articulation, development and promotion of voluntary activity in Guatemala. We bring together several institutions committed to volunteering, as a service to the communities and the development of the country from their own vocations and resources. We have been working in Guatemala since 2006 and we focus our activities on the formation of a Network of volunteer organizations and on the promotion of the national voluntary movement, through different activities.
Like many other Latin American countries that share the Pacific and Caribbean coastline, Guatemala is experiencing a crisis of development and overfishing, exacerbated by the lack of opportunities, income alternatives and the scarcity of scientific knowledge about the true state of the different fishery resource populations, mainly chondrichthyans. Faced with this situation, Mundo Azul Foundation has initiated its efforts to generate scientific information that advances the level of knowledge about sharks, rays and other fisheries.
