The mangroves of Corozal Bay Wildlife Sanctuary are an integral part of the marine habitat in Belize. West Indian Manatee, Hawksbill Turtle, Goliath Grouper, Sawfish and numerous other species find a haven here while Bull Sharks and numerous fish species use this rich habitat as a nursery, these juveniles eventually grow to inhabit the Belize Barrier Reef, a Natural World Heritage Site. The mangroves also serve a number of vital environmental services. They are of great importance to the health of the coastal waters of Belize.
