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.
Rio Bravo Conservation and Management
Established in 1988, the Rio Bravo Conservation and Management Area has accumulated enough land over the years to become the largest terrestrial conservation area in the country that amounts to four percent of all of Belize. On top of this, Rio Bravo is one of the most open conservation areas, and tourists can even stay on property for days or weeks at a time to pitch in and help with conservation efforts.
The Snake Cayes consists of a group of four small islands - West Snake Caye, Middle Snake Caye, East Snake Caye, and South Snake Caye. The name was inherited from an abundance of boa constrictors that once lived on one of the islands. These cayes are not a part of the barrier reef system, but instead lie on an isolated coral ridge growing on a limestone ledge that extends several miles into the inner lagoon of the Belize Coastal Zone.
Half Moon Belize
Half Moon Caye is considered a Natural Monument of Belize. The key is full of marine species such as corals, garden eels and sponge formations. You will also find eagle rays, sea turtles and groupers. This marine diversity contributes to the practice of diving in these waters.
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
