With its own private wildlife reserve, Sanctuary Belize is home to a menagerie of animals and plants. Encompassing 10,000 acres of protected land, the Sittee Wildlife Reserve is Belize’s largest privately owned nature sanctuary established to protect the diversity of flora and fauna as well as the delicate ecosystems they inhabit. Originating high the Maya Mountains, the Reserve follows the path of the Sittee River as it meanders down through dense
tropical broadleaf jungle to its ultimate destination: the Caribbean Sea. This river serves as a vital source of life for a vibrant array of rare animal and plant species, including the world’s tallest mangroves and the elusive jaguar. Protected from development and exploitation, this critical wildlife corridor will remain untouched for Sanctuary Belize residents to experience and enjoy.
