Closed Hunting Seasons
Hunting, as described in our laws, also includes harassing, catching, and any other kind of physical contact with wildlife, and is illegal. Please educate your family and friends and encourage them to leave our wildlife WILD. Want to hunt? Get your permits, respect our laws and natural heritage. We are in closed season for Gibnut, iguana, armadillo and all birds. The hunting regulations are so precise that it is highly unlikely that anyone out hunting is doing so legally. Take pictures and report them. Do your part today to conserve for tomorrow.

Belize Raptor Center at Cahal Pech Archeological Site
We would like to send a HUGE thank you to NICH for allowing us to present to Louisiana Govt School from OW. We could not accommodate the number of students at our facility and instead of turning them away we worked out a win win situation. The children not only got to experience meeting and learning about birds of prey but they also got to enjoy discovering the beautiful Cahal Pech archaeological sight. We hope to do more collaborating with NICH in the near future with large groups of students from all over Belize.

The first Central America raptor guide is out by Bill Clark!
A great book. Go get your copy today. A sample plate and species account.
