Celebrating the Belize Audubon Society's 50th Anniversary

2019 marks Belize Audubon Society's 50th Anniversary.  On February 6, 1969, the Belize Audubon Society (BAS) was founded for the purpose of learning more about wildlife in Belize and preserving it as a part of Belize’s heritage.  Today the BAS continues the important conservation work as the oldest environmental NGO protecting Belize’s precious natural resources. 

BAS currently co-manages seven of Belize's Protected Areas, including Blue Hole Natural Monument, Half Moon Caye Natural Monument, St. Herman's Blue Hole National Park, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, Gunanacaste National Park, and Victoria Peak Natural Monument.

As part of the 50th year anniversary celebrations, the BAS will be running a video contest. This is your chance to submit a short video showing how you explore and enjoy a Belize Audubon Society co-managed protected area for a chance to win. Whether it be hiking, swimming, river-tubing, birding, cave-tubing, diving, snorkeling, or any other BAS adventure - we encourage you to visit a BAS park today to explore, enjoy and conserve!
