The best zoo of the world!

The Belize Zoo is located 31 miles west of Belize City, settled upon 29 acres of tropical savanna, exhibits over 150 animals, representing over 45 species of Belize.  The zoo keeps animals which were orphaned, rescued, born at the zoo, rehabilitated animals, or sent to the zoo as donations from other zoological institutions.

The animals at the Belize Zoo are not kept in cages or surrounded by bars or barred concrete bunkers, but rather housed in large vegetated enclosures of mesh and wood.

Along with jaguars you’ll see other wild cats: pumas, margays, ocelots, and jaguarondis. At the zoo you’ll also see jabiru storks, a harpy eagle, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys, crocodiles, and many snakes.

A visit to the zoo is the best way to get an introduction to the animals of Belize, and to understand why it is important to protect the habitats that sustain them.
