The jaguar is Guyana’s national animal. Guyana’s Coat of Arms features two of these strong and courageous big cats which are found in the jungles of Guyana.

Video: Plane Lands at Lethem (Part 3)

Today, 6th of January, 2023, I did a third video of the Trans Guyana Plane landing at the Lethem Airport. Hope I didn’t scare anyone or cause any problems by the way. I stood on the road just in front of the airstrip. When the plane approached, it was a scary feeling, as though the plane with its frightening propeller blades were coming straight at me. I tried to hold my ground but I found myself side stepping a bit.

Video: Guyana’s First Recorded Tornado

A tornado is a funnel of rapidly spinning air, or, in other words, we can say that a tornado is a violently rotating column of air. Tornadoes form during thunderstorms when warm, humid air collides with cold, dry air. Sometimes, a tornado may not reach the ground, and form instead a funnel cloud. If you see a funnel cloud, know that you run potentially near to the way of an impending tornado.

Video: British Volunteer Takes Part in Cassava Processing Activity in Rewa Village, North Rupununi

For the indigenous peoples of Guyana, cassava is a staple, and they use it in various ways. Using a matapee, the liquid is squeezed from the grated cassava. This is used to make cassareep – a preservative that is both nutritious, delicious, and keeps food edible over long periods of time. The solid byproduct is then processed into farine – a food product that is popular in Region 9 and neighboring Brazil. Farine, a high-energy food product, is often eaten with meat, rice, fish etc, and it carries a very long shelf life.

Video: Guyana’s First Recorded Tornado

Tornadoes may have been happening in Guyana since time immorial, but this is the first time it was recorded due to the proliferation of mobile devices. On the 13th of October, 2021, the first tornado ever was recorded, literally, over Guyanese soil. Near the villages of Hiowa and Nappi in the Central Rupununi Savannahs, a relatively small tornado swept by – accompanied by lots of lightning and thunder. Luckily, someone pulled out their mobile device and started recording the phenomenon which they later posted to social media, specifically, Facebook.
