Caiman and Turtles, Guatemala Photograph by Anthony Davis A caiman rescued by the ARCAS organization in Guatemala gets the eye from a ring of turtles. Founded in 1989, ARCAS strives to rehabilitate animals seized from poachers and illegal pet traders, eventually releasing most back into the wild. As one of hundreds of travelers fortunate enough to volunteer at ARCAS each year, I spent long, hot, but enjoyable days cleaning and feeding parrots, scarlet macaws, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, and other species under pressure in Central America.
