Belize: Where Eco-tourism is Mecca for Nature Lovers!
It’s an alarming trend, say scientists at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Almost 2/3rds of the global wildlife population has disappeared in the past 50 years, and “Latin America and the Caribbean were the most affected, with an average decline of 94-percent.” But not every nation is witnessing this dramatic decline. Belize remains a bastion of biodiversity, safeguarding the world’s second largest coral reef, pristine jungles, rainforests and a wide range of wildlife species.
“While the trends are alarming, there is reason to remain optimistic,” said WWF Global Chief Scientist Rebecca Shaw. “Young generations are becoming acutely aware of the link between planetary health and their own futures, and they are demanding action.” For this optimistic reason, there is a good chance that Belize may turn out to be the single most responsible nation on the Caribbean rim. For nature lovers, this is the best news of all.
Intrepid travelers with hectic work and personal schedules will especially appreciate Belize. It takes only a couple of hours by plane to reach Belize, one of the smallest nations in Central America. This means getting from place to place within the nation’s borders is not just doable but effortless.
