Judy Waight

The Belize Coalition to Save our Natural Heritage recently unveiled its new logo. The umbrella organization and its fight to preserve the natural wonders of Belize has taken on a softer tone. The coalition is hosting its first summer camp for kids. The camp is free and the first two days will take place at St. Catherine Academy followed by a tour at a wildlife sanctuary. Spaces are open and according to the coalition’s education and outreach officer, the organization intends to sign up students on Saturday.

“The Belize Coalition to Save Our Natural Heritage in collaboration with BELPO is hosting a three day oil and water summer camp, it starts on August 7th and it runs through the 9th. The objective is to engage 25 students in a fun and learning environment. On day one they will be learning about water conservation: protecting our rivers and our watersheds. Day two is about learning importance of protected areas and drilling outside of protected areas. And day three is a field trip to the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary where they will be learning about the history, we will be doing a nature walk trail and a bird by boating tour. We have 25 spaces and particularly we are targeting students who normally would not visit a protected area. It’s a free camp and we are having an open day registration tomorrow. It will be at the national trade union congress of Belize office situated on Tree Cut Avenue starting at 10 am.”
