Belize Zoo: a unique collection of rescued wild animals of Belize, this quirky zoological park rehabilitates injured or rogue creatures that would otherwise have died or been culled. Look out also for the hand painted enclosure signs in verse!.
This is a different kind of zoo.The humans are carefully controlled and escorted.Most animals are in their natural habitat.
The zoo tends to close early - around 4pm, and they will be waving you out at this time which is feeding time!
Run by a former Mexican circus girl,
The "Zoo" presents a unique opportunity to get really close to many
wild animals of Belize that have grown used to the proximity of
humans. These are rescued and rehabilitated animals that could not
survive on their own in the wild, and it is a real privilege to be
able through the cost of admission to contribute a few much-needed
dollars towards their upkeep in this safe, well fed haven.
