Today, many nations across the globe are celebrating the first ever World Wildlife Day. In recognition of the importance of the world’s wild flora and fauna and in an effort to raise awareness for its conservation and protection, this day has been set apart. Most naturally, Belize has joined in on the campaign. From our pristine rainforests, home to our jaguars and countless wild flora to our dazzling waters home to the world’s second largest barrier reef- we have much to not only celebrate but to protect.
About the Author: Tamara Sniffin
I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
