Paradise In Peril
Tales From BelizeStreaming Video - 2013
The lush rain forests and rich valleys of Belize provide valuable habitat for a vast array of wildlife. Greg Sho, a Maya guide and bushman, is one of Belize's many dedicated conservationists. In the valley of the Rapsacola River, he and his friend Sharon Matola, director of the Belize Zoo, have spent several seasons tracking the country's small and endangered population of scarlet macaws. Only a few hundred remain in the remote valleys. Greg and Sharon are also working on a tapir census. Due to the abundance of wild cane in the valley, tapir are common in Belize, although they have been virtually eliminated elsewhere in the world. This episode of Tales from Belize accompanies Greg as he visits and participates in a variety of wildlife conservation projects in the country's rain forests and valleys. From macaws and tapirs to jaguars and howler monkeys, the spectacular fauna that make their home in this unique ecosystem are among the most diverse and fascinating in the world.
