Eco-Lite: The Belize Zoo

Eco-Lite:  The Belize Zoo | Life In Belize | Scoop.it

The Belize Zoo got another great write up, and in this article you can see the new cafe and entrance that they've built, which look great.  There are some extremely high resolution pictures there too.

 

"The Belize Zoo is easily worth a couple of hours just to see all the gorgeous birds in very attractive aviaries and read the info-plaques on the exhibits.  I love how the zoo educates both Belizeans and tourists about how the birds and animals are part of their cultural heritage and should be protected and treasured!"

One of the many gems of island life. Sat out on the dock for about 3 hrs today reading & studying and got to watch this local, Stephen, catch a bunch of sardines for bait. So cool. (Also notice the crane in the background being a thief!) #beulahinbelize #ywamdp #sanpedro #belize

26 Youths Represented Belize at Youth Conference

26 Youths Represented Belize at Youth Conference | Life In Belize | Scoop.it

Feelgood news of the day.  26 Belizean youths went to El Salvador to attend a youth conference that focused on contributing to the community.

 

"Twenty-six Belizean Youth Attend Conference in El Salvador to Learn to Contribute to Their Community.  Youth from six communities in Belize travelled to El Salvador over this past weekend (2 - 5 August) to attend a Bahá’í Youth Conference.  They returned Monday night full of excitement to execute the plans they made for themselves to serve their communities of Corozal, Belmopan, Belize City, San Pedro, San Ignacio, and Dangriga.  This Conference was attended by 660 youth ages 15 to 30 from Belize, Cuba, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador.  It was one of 114 similar Regional Conferences being held from July through October around the globe on all continents and many island groups.  The purpose of these gatherings is 'to summon today's youth' of all faiths and backgrounds 'to put the needs of others before their own' in order 'to aid the spiritual and social development of those around them, especially ones younger than themselves.'"
