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.
Coffee with Conservationists is a series dedicated to raising awareness about conservation in Belize. The Belize Collection wanted to have meaningful conversations with the people spearheading the work that allows our reef to be the largest living barrier reef in the world. Work that makes Belize home to the world’s only jaguar reserve. Work that makes Belize a country worth visiting over and over again.
In episode two, we sat down with the Vice President of Oceana Belize, Janelle Chanona. Watch now to learn how this organization used people participation to make crucial changes to legislation in Belize and hear about future plans and goals to keep the preservation of Belize’s waters at the forefront.
Episode 3 coming this June.
