“These natural wonders are not only Belizean, but also part of the world’s natural assets and shared heritage. National Geographic has always played an important role in letting the rest of the world know just how spectacular they are, and this awareness goes a long way in helping us protect them.”

Today’s theme was Bio Waste Management, and we focused on using the 3 R’s: reduce, reuse, and recycle. During our arts and crafts time, the eco-campers were lucky enough to receive a visit from the youth ambassadors of the Friends for Conservation and Development.

As a kid I would want to help save our environment but I can’t do it alone. It takes more than one person but it starts with me. I will be eco friendly to help save the planet and so I could live in a greener and safer world. Eco friendly is not doing anything to hurt yourself or the world you live in. A family that goes green together stays together.

By becoming an eco kid, I will equip myself with the knowledge I need to know how to better care for growing plants and to protect the animals and their habitats. By being an eco kid, I could be given a life learning experience.

I enjoy learning about animals and plants. By learning about nature, I will be able to encourage my friends to do the same and appreciate nature for what it is. By doing that, they will recycle, and see nature how I see it as a wonderful place where there are things still to be discovered. They will want to protect it too. This is why I want to be an eco kid.

I want to spread the news about going green and keeping the environment clean. When I see people wasting water I think about the people who don’t have water. I want to try to conserve water.

I really don’t have any real camping experience but I will learn. I heard that Chaa Creek is the best resort in Belize and the world. I always wanted to visit Chaa Creek and be a part of its prestigious history. I hope I get a chance to ride a horse, it is one of my favorite fantasies. I’ve never been on a camp trip before and being an Eco-kid will be one of the greatest experiences in my life that I will cherish forever.

This year is the “New Beginning” for the Maya. I love to climb Maya temples and see the jungle from a new dimension. Imagine if I found an Ancient Maya spear head, clay pot or jade artifact? There is so little that is known about the Ancient Maya it would be amazing to find cool stuff to show the world and tell their story.

I would like to be an Eco kid and be able to go to the Eco Kids Camp because this camp looks as much fun as when I went to Cub Scout Camp at Camp Oakley. Being a cub scout I get to do a lot of activities outside at our meetings. As cubs scouts we look after nature and learn to take care of it by doing garbage cleanup and planting trees around our community. We also have fun with other scouts by playing games and learning to share with them.

Being an eco-kid would give me the opportunity to learn more about nature and to be able to share that knowledge with my classmates, my brothers and sister and my other friends. This year, I would like to be a Chaa Creek Eco-Kid to learn more about how I can make a difference in this beautiful country called Belize. I wonder… what exactly would await me at Chaa Creek? I’d sure like to find out!!

Living in the tropics, you sometimes wonder what autumn in the northern climes must be like. We’ve seen the breathtaking photos on calendars, greeting cards, in magazines and elsewhere, so there’s always a feeling of missing out on something, of the smell of wood smoke in the air, crunch of leaves underfoot, the nip at the tips of the nose… all those romantic autumn things we hear about.

I want my children to understand and respect other people’s opinions, circumstances, cultures and heritage. For that I believe it’s absolutely vital for them to get out in the world and befriend people from all continents and countries and with its diverse community, Belize seems the most perfect place to start!

The nuclear power station at Chernobyl in the Ukraine for example, exploded in 1986 releasing large amounts of toxic and radioactive materials into the air. Swedish scientists detected this dangerous pollution in the air since it was brought by the wind from Ukraine which is many kilometers away. Soil, water and air became devastated with this radioactive material and many crops and animals in several countries had to be destroyed because they were too dangerous to eat. Thousands of people had to be moved from their homes because the environment around the power station was no longer safe to live.

To A Rainforest from the Reef

It would be a privilege to visit another land that has taken the time to put the ecosystem before the financial gain of tourism. I have visited home a few times since I moved up north and Key West is not like it was 21 years ago when I was fifteen years old. Many corporations and chain restaurants moved in slowly and changed the vibe of the island and along with it they have tampered with the nature of the island.

Conserve & Protect Mother Earth!

I really love nature and everything there is in nature like the birds when they sing, the rushing waters in rivers, creeks and lakes, the noise of the wind, and all the little animals you can find in the wild. I especially like the colourful attracting birds like the scarlet macaws, blue jays, toucans, and parrots.

Report from a Very Small Visitor

Then the bird spoke to me, saying, “I was in Belize this winter and I am going there from now on!” Instead of saying, “You can talk!” I asked, “Why do you say that?”He said, “I found a nice place to go where there was sparkly water and bright, beautiful flowers. There were humans there, too, but I hardly noticed them as I flew around. They sometimes came in groups, but they only looked at me through some kind of round things. I think you do that, too!”

Vacation Sweepstakes Essay#1

Belize Eco Tourism Vacation Sweepstakes
On my return flight home from San Ignacio, Belize I was already trying to calculate my finances to go back. I, along with twelve others, was working with ProBelize to build a homeless shelter for teenage girls. This project, and the town, opened my eyes to a whole new world, to say the least. In the ten days I was there, I learned to appreciate the world around me more than I ever had in …

Belize’s ecology-economy balance

Belize’s ecology-economy balance

Belize is known throughout Central America for its progressive environmental conservation programmes, but with few exports, the small nation’s economy also depends heavily on tourism.

And the large volume of tourists – many drawn to the world’s second largest barrier reef that is home to a huge variety of marine life – has some experts worried that potentially irreversible harm is being done to the country’s treasured environment.

As Al Jazeera’s David Mercer explains, finding a balance between the environment and the economy can be a challenge.
