That species of shark is now protected off the coasts of Belize and Mexico, and last May Dr. Graham received the 2011 Gold Award and about $100,000 from the Whitley Fund for Nature in England for her work on its behalf..."

Botanically Belize | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

I haven't read the book, but it is free, easy to register and download, and sounds interesting.

 

"...My new little eBook is published! Botanically Belize is a garden/travel book about my adventures in Belize. I went for about 3 weeks in December/Jan. and explored almost the whole country, by way of a tiny little pickup truck and my awesome boyfriend, Matt. We went cave tubing, Mayan ruin trekking, hiking, horse back riding through the jungle, and came across tons of little adventures and friendly locals along the way. I also got to further my obsession with Cacao!.."

Maya collapse coincided with drought

Maya collapse coincided with drought | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it
The mysterious Maya collapse more than a millennium ago came amid a long-term drop in rainfall, confirms a study.

 

"...The Classic Maya kings erected pyramid-dominated cities throughout Central America from roughly 300 AD to 900 AD, concluding in abandonment of most centers that has left the region littered with mysterious ruins. Archeologists have pointed to warfare, depleted soil and drought as factors, among many others, in the "collapse."..."

Nice travl blog post about a trip from Guatemala to Punta Gorda, Belize. Some nice photos included

 

"...My trusty wristwatch alarm started chirping at 5:45 AM. The rain hadn't let up one bit since the beginning of the night. Our river taxi was supposed to pick us up at 6 AM to take us upstream to a town called Livingstonwhere a ferry departs only twice a week to Belize. Assuming the heavy rainfall would hinder these plans, I left Whitney to continue dreaming, and figured I'd go check to see if anyone was in the lobby anyway. I grabbed the flashlight to light my way, as Finca Titan only taps into their diesel supply for electricity a few hours a day, and made my way toward the river..."

The Belize Barrier Reef Series

The Belize Barrier Reef Series | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

Sometimes I come across a photo that makes me look twice. At first I thought "this looks like a hell of a low tide, all that coral is exposed". But looking closer, I notices a slight break of waves over the top of some of the coral heads. In fact, the water is so clear, that it is an illusion that the coral heads are above water. This photo provides a clear view of what our barrier reef is - not rubble and dead coral skeletons - but a living, growing, healthy organism.
