LETTER: Musicians, Reverb, EIA send letter to Guatemalan President

Inspired by a recent trip to Guatemala with EIA and partner Reverb, Jesse Carmichael and James Valentine of Maroon 5 and Adam Gardner of Guster, have sent a letter to the President of Guatemala, asking him to support one of the world’s leading models of forest management.

Forest concessions in northern Guatemala’s biodiverse Maya Biosphere Reserve are governed by a concession system that fosters community management of natural resources alongside forest preservation. In their letter, Carmichael, Valentine, and Gardner express their hope that President Morales support community forest management in the Maya Biosphere Reserve, which they visited in December 2015.
