Highlights

  • Done in English

Located only a few minutes drive from Belize City, the Baboon Sanctuary Community sits on the banks of the Belize Olde River. The site has attracted international attention for its innovation in combining the needs of humans with the needs of the natural habitat. It is a great example of the spirit of coexistence that Belizeans have with nature.



In this grassroots effort, villagers and landowners have pledged to preserve the habitat needed to ensure a healthy population of black howler monkeys. With help from the World Conservation Organization and the Milwaukee County Zoological Society, a small natural history museum and visitor center has been built in the Bermudian Landfall, which is the most central place in the sanctuary.
