coffee with conservationists

invest - collaborate - educate

Coffee with Conservationists was born out of The Belize Collection’s desire to make meaningful impact in areas of environmental sustainability. We wanted to go beyond our environmentally friendly practices already taking place at our resorts. It began as a simply by brainstorming resort based Earth Day ideas and panned out into a year-long project involving eight conservation organizations. Our team felt strongly about using the platform we’ve steadily built with our brand to give an audience to crucial blue and green conservation work taking place in Belize. We wanted to have important conversations about the daily work that takes place behind the scenes to keep Belize a beloved little country and top tourist destination. We saw a gap we could fill.

This first episode focuses on The Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center. Unlike many commercial zoos, The Belize Zoo began from the efforts of one woman to create a home for a group of animals left behind from a documentary about tropical forests. This backyard zoo soon grew into a center of education. Home to only native species of Belize, Conservation Program Manager Jamal Andrewin-Bohn tells us about their history, mission and ongoing projects. We learn about The Best Little Zoo in the World and what we can do to help.
