Belize Experiential Learning
On our next expedition, local environmentally concerned high school students will travel to Belize in Summer 2023 to take part in biological conservation research and sustainability leadership initiatives. Belize is home to a variety of marine and terrestrial ecosystems, from rainforest and tropical savanna to mangroves, coral reefs, and more. Examine and compare the country’s different natural, unspoiled habitats during this 8-day learning adventure. Observe wildlife and hike in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, explore underground caves, and snorkel in the South Water Caye Marine Reserve for a firsthand look at marine biodiversity. As students learn more about the importance of Belize’s natural beauty and its conservation, they’ll also gain a deeper understanding of how these environments are connected and contribute to a series of service and research projects at the Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center and on the Belize Barrier Reef, gaining a deeper understanding of how these environments are interconnected.
