Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary
Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary (CTWS) contains a mosaic of wetland and terrestrial habitats, which make it one of the best birding destinations in Belize. From the commonly seen Northern Jacana to the elusive Sungrebe, Crooked Tree offers an enjoyable experience for birders of any skill level. With 16,400 acres of lagoons, creeks, logwood swamps, broadleaf forest and pine savanna, you will be sure to see a wide array of wildlife. The Sanctuary protects globally endangered species including the Central American River Turtle (locally known as Hicatee), Mexican Black Howler Monkey, and Yellow-headed Parrot.
Community Baboon Sanctuary
One of the largest populations of the Black Howler Monkey is located at the Community Baboon Sanctuary in the Belize River Valley. Visitors who delight in the thought of a monkey sitting on their shoulder may want to make plans to head to this spot
