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.
The Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center – Part II
Coffee with Conservationists kicked off its first ever episode with The Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center. The zoo, which acts as a sanctuary for the indigenous animals of Belize, had so much to share with us that we’ve created a special part two feature. In this episode, we dig deeper into the behind-the-scenes conservation work that goes beyond the friendly faces of the residents we see when we visit the zoo. To save wildlife, we must save wild habitats. Conservationist Program Manager Jamal Andrewin-Bohn tells us more and shares a message for aspiring conservationists.
