GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala, October 3, 2006 (ENS) - The U.S. government on Monday announced a major debt-for-nature swap that will provide more than $24 million for conservation efforts in Guatemala. The funds will help conserve Guatemala's high altitude cloud forests, rain forests, and coastal mangrove swamps, home to hundreds of species of migratory birds, as well as many rare and endangered species including jaguars, howler monkeys and scarlet macaws.
