Host to one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, Belize provides the perfect getaway and hands on research for students studying evolutionary biology, botany, biodiversity, or even sustainable farming methods. The country has more than 150 species of animals, 540 species of birds, 151 species of amphibians and reptiles, and over 3,400 species of plants. One of Belize’s most popular destinations, for both vacation and field research is Cha Creek, a tributary of the Macal River located in the western region of Belize.
Here at Chaa Creek, the site of an ancient Maya settlement containing over 70 recorded Maya sites including pyramids and plazas, we support and encourage further research into Maya habitation. We also welcome our guests to explore the Maya archaeology of Belize and discover this fascinating, enigmatic civilisation for themselves. Who knows? Future discoveries may well be made by someone who became interested in this fascinating culture while exploring the 365 acre Chaa Creek Nature Reserve and visiting our Natural History Centre.
