On my most recent trip to Belize we made our way to the Belize Zoo. This little zoo is my very favorite! It was created in 1983 in an effort to provide a home for a group of wild animals that had been used in a documentary film about tropical forests. Now the zoo spreads out over 29 acres, holding over 150 animals that represent 45 species native to Belize. It was a memorable day that included seeing the little Margay Scott and I donated to the zoo a little over a year ago.
