Belize

Protecting a stronghold for biodiversity

Belize is a true ‘Eden’. The nation’s ecosystems are some of the most intact globally; found in broadleaf tropical forests, pine forests, wetlands, mangroves, savannahs, and coral reefs. With a tropical climate, seasonal rains, fertile soils and oceanic wonders, this is a country of immense natural wealth.

However, Belize’s natural resources are at risk of exploitation from industrial farming, logging, and illegal wildlife crime. The survival of Belize’s natural resources is critical for the future of biodiversity, for local communities, and for our climate. The European Nature Trust is supporting efforts to conserve Belize’s natural wealth and raise awareness of this critical outpost for global biodiversity.
