CABEI volunteers carry out beach cleanup and turtle release in Guatemala


The institution reinforces its role as an active agent in the sustainable development of the region through actions that help preserve the biodiversity of the marine-coastal ecosystems of the Guatemalan Pacific.

Guatemala city, December 14th, 2023.- To contribute to reducing the pollution generated by solid waste on Guatemala's Pacific coast, a group of 55 volunteers from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), made up of employees, their families and friends, carried out a beach cleanup activity in Monterrico, in the department of Santa Rosa.

The release of 90 sea turtles was also carried out at the El Banco Biological Station in order to increase their chances of success in the riskiest stage of their life cycle. This activity also seeks to raise environmental awareness to protect turtle species that are in danger of extinction.

In a global scenario marked by growing challenges for biodiversity and where ecosystem pollution has increased, it is important to develop this type of actions that contribute to the collective call to adopt sustainable practices, guarantee the survival of marine species, as well as the protection of their habitat.

These initiatives are part of CABEI's Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility System (SASC), which promotes community collaboration to preserve and protect our natural environment for future generations.
