By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Internationally known magazine National Geographic features Belize as one of the best six places in the world to rediscover nature in an article published on Thursday, November 18, 2021.
The article ‘Best of the World: six places to rediscover nature for 2022 and beyond’ says now is the time to plan a trip for next year and the first place it recommends is Belize.
Belize offers a front row seat to tropical wildlife says the article accompanied by a photograph of a golden-fronted woodpecker eating a papaya at the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary.
“Nature scored a big win recently in the race to preserve one of the largest remaining tropical rainforests in the Americas,” says National Geographic in reference Nature Conservancy buying 236,000 acres of tropical forest in northwestern Belize to set up the Belize Maya Forest Reserve. It says the protected area connects the wildlife corridor that runs through Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize.
The reserve, says the article, is home to endemic and endangered creatures, such as “the tapir, Belize’s national animal; black howler monkeys; more than 400 species of bird; and some of Central America’s largest surviving populations of jaguar” great for ecotourism.
The article also features Northern Minnesota, Namibia, Lake Baikal in Russia, Victoria in Australia, and Kent in the United Kingdom.
