Caribbean rhythms, abundant wildlife and warm, friendly waters make Belize a bucket list location for many; however, there is much work to be done here! Commercial fishing, climate change and human expansion pose a threat to the country's flora and fauna, including the Antilles manatee. Work alongside a non-profit organization that supports one of the country's largest wildlife sanctuaries, assisting on projects ranging from mangrove reforestation to marine monitoring to community outreach & education. While you're here, you'll become a marine "expert" in your own right: snorkel over coral reefs, boat through the bay and explore coastal caves via inner tube.
