See local mammals and birds in the Belize Zoo
The Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center is a zoo in Belize, located some 29 miles (47 km) west of Belize City on the Western Highway. Set in 29 acres (12 ha), the zoo was founded in 1983 by Sharon Matola. It is home to more than 125 animals of about 48 species, all native to Belize. The natural environment of Beize is left entirely intact within the zoo. The dense, natural vegetation is separated only by gravel trails through the forest.
