The distance of Cahal Pech Resort from The Belize Zoo
One of the most popular residents is a black jaguar jaguar named Lucky Boy. Rescued from a near death from malnutrition, he is now considered one of the guardians of the zoo. Lucky Boy is the most photographed resident of the zoo. Other featured residents include Panama (a harpy eagle), Balboa (a boa constrictor) and Fuego (a tapir).
The Belize Zoo was founded in 1983 in order to rescue mistreated and abandoned animals that had been used in documentary films. As the zoo transitioned to a permanent facility, the organizers realized that many local people were unfamiliar with the native animals that inhabited Belize. This prompted the zoo to transform from a holding facility to an outreach center with a strong focus on education. Operated and owned by a non-profit trust, the Belize Zoo and Education Center’s mission is to introduce visitors to the animals of Belize and promote awareness about the eco-systems in the country.
