Belize Rainforest Video Overview by Belize Tourism Board

19 November 2008 3 Comments

Our friends at the Belize Tourism Board have put together a great series of videos giving some useful background information on traveling to Belize.

The video in this article is an installment video in a series produced by the Belize Tourism Board. This particular installment covers one of our favorite areas, the Belize Rainforest. The video is only a couple minutes long, but it gives a very interesting slideshow mixed with a narrative over view of the Rainforest. It shares information about the birds and plants found in Belize, but this is only a sampling of the options you can explore in the rainforest of Belize.

Belize Tourism Board Video on Belize Rainforest and Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary

It also talks about the only Jaguar preserve in the world at the Cockscomb Basic Wildlife Sanctuary preserve.

Belize-Rainforest-TreesThe Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is a nature reserve in south-central Belize established to protect the forests, fauna and watersheds of an approximately 400 square kilometre area of the eastern slopes of the Maya Mountains. The reserve was founded in 1990 as the first wilderness sanctuary for the jaguar and is regarded by one author as the premier site for jaguar preservation in the world.[1] The site consists of two distinct adjacent watersheds and is accessible via a low intensity trail system to accommodate visitors and research environmental scientists. ~ Wikipedia

The Cockscomb preserve is just one of the areas covered in the video and only one aspect of the Belize Rainforest. For me when I watch this video, the views are amazing, but the trees, the imagery of the trees in this particular video are mesmerizing.
