Based in the city of Raleigh, North Carolina, The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences brings the magic of their education expertise to Belize each and every year. The objective of the program is to provide certain and special educators with a superb journey to Belize. Since 1987, fortunate North Carolina science educators have been coming to Belize, joining up with Belizean teachers, and exploring the wonders of our bio-diverse nation.
Many visitors to the “Best Little Zoo in the World” stay at our fun and rustic Zoo Lodge. The Lodge, known as the Tropical Education Center (TEC) is set on 84 acres of beautiful pine savanna habitat. And, yes, there is far more there than just comfortable accommodations for our guests!
The Belize Zoo Internship Program has grown into a very productive and exciting initiative over the years. People from all walks of life come from all over the world to the Zoo to make their contributions to our important conservation work. Interns dedicate their time and energy to either Animal Management or Education, the two most important pillars of the Zoo. Sometimes, they do both!
Bird’s the word for Belize Zoo staff, as we welcome a beautiful pair of Great Curassow chicks to the Curassow family group. Parents “Hans and Sigi” are the best Mom and Dad, too. “ Sigi” sees that her chicks are always in close contact, and they all share food from the same plate.
