HERE IS AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO PROTECT CRITICAL TROPICAL HABITAT, ENSURE THE FUTURE OF ENDANGERED AND RARE SPECIES INCLUDING THE JAGUAR, TAPIR, YELLOW-HEADED PARROT AND THE- TOO –RARE- FOR- WORDS….STYGIAN OWL.  

THE BELIZE ZOO & TROPICAL EDUCATION CENTER, AND ITS PARTNER, BEED, ARE TEAMING UP IN AN EFFORT TO PROTECT NEARLY 3,000 ACRES OF CRITICAL HABITAT! 

PART OF THE PROTECTION PLAN IS TO PURCHASE 945 ACRES OF TROPICAL SAVANNA AND ADJACENT LOWLAND TROPICAL FOREST.  TROPICAL BIODIVERSITY IS IN DIRE NEED OF PROTECTION.  THIS PLAN IS A FIRM CALL TO ACTION.

A TARGET SEED FUND OF USD $100,000 IS BEING SOUGHT SO THAT THE FUTURE OF THESE RESOURCES CAN BE GUARANTEED.  THE POSITIVE IMPACT RESULTING FROM THIS PROJECT BEING REALIZED IS  MASSIVE.  IMPRESSIVELY SO.  HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!
