The World Land Trust has a wonderful track record in working with local partners around the world to help them buy land for conservation purposes. Their partner in Belize, the Corozal Sustainable Future Initiative, alreadfy protect Shepstem, Jungle for Jaguars, Honey Camp and Freshwater Creek.
Vital habitats for wildlife in this area are being cleared for agriculture – but it's vital that these areas are connected for wildlife. They need room to roam.
At least 22 jaguars live the jungle corridor of northern Belize – they are often spotted. They thrive there, loving the wet and dry tropical forest and finding plenty of food to eat.
Ocelots, Margays, Pumas and Jaguarundi also live in the area, as well as the Endangered Baird’s Tapir. Geoffroy’s Spider Monkey, Howler Monkey and Nine-banded Armadillo, Keel-billed Toucan and Ornate Hawk-eagle will also be protected by this appeal.
