Belize Zoo Tour
The Belize Zoo
The Belize Zoo was founded in 1983 and is unique as far as its contributions to conservation efforts in Belize. The Belize Zoo was founded by Sharon Matola whose diligent efforts to protect and conserve the wildlife of Belize has been highlighted on shows such as Steve Corwin adventures and National Geographic. This is one of the few zoos in the world which works solely with rehabilitated or injured animals that call Belize their home. All the animals at the zoo are kept in their natural habitat and here you can come up close with monkeys, jaguars, tapirs, and rare and endangered birds such as the Scarlet Macaw.
This zoo is very easily accessible and can be toured in a couple of hours as a stop on the way back to San Ignacio from cave tubing or a stop on the way to the International airport.
