Fulfilling a commitment he made several months ago, Mel Gibson has reportedly left the country to pursue a week-long charity mission down in Guatemala. Sources say the purpose of the trip is to help save the last tracts of virgin rain forest left in Central America.

Back in 2008, Gibson donated $500,000 to support the Mirador Basin Project in Guatemala – tasked with preserving land considered the “cradle of the Mayan civilization”. The location served as the inspiration for Mel’s hit movie Apocalypto. He’s also chairman of the Foundation for Anthropological Research and Environmental Studies(FARES), which is a sponsor of the Mirador Basin Project.

Gibson’s leave of absence comes on news from TMZ that he’s set to be formally charged with misdemeanor domestic violence. The charges come from allegations that were made by his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. We’ll see what happens upon his return, but something tells me most people would prefer if Mel simply stayed in Central America indefinitely.
