Belize Zoo

"Something tells me it's all happening at the zoo."

Belize Zoo keeps only animals that are orphaned, injured, born in the zoo or received as gifts from other zoos.  They keep the environment as natural as possible.  Each animal has its own shady jungle home.

The zoo concentrates on conservation and education of Belizians (especially children) on native animals and their environmental needs.

You can stroll the zoo in a couple of hours, so it can be a quick stop on a journey across country.  It is on the bus route on the Western Highway.
