The Belize Zoo is located 31 miles west of Belize City and sits on 84 acres of tropical savanna and exhibits over 150 animals, representing over 45 species, all native to Belize. The Belize Zoo came into existence 1983 in an effort to provide a home for 17 wild animals which had been used in the filming of documentaries about the rainforests.

The Belize Zoo keeps animals which were orphaned, rescued, born at the zoo, rehabilitated animals, or sent to The Belize Zoo as donations from other zoological institutions. 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. 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 netting and wood.
