Belize

With close to 40 percent of its total land area protected, Belize is already a laudable contributor to the IUCN’s post-2020 biodiversity goal of protecting 30 percent of the planet by 2030. This makes Belize a critical link in the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor, the biogeograhical path along which animals from North and South America travel and disperse. 

Home to some of the most exquisite tropical wet forests and mangrove ecosystems in Central America and the richest reefs in the Caribbean (the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef), Belize is a natural jewel of both regional and international importance.
