One of our main partners is the Toucan Ridge Ecology and Education Society (T.R.E.E.S) and their field station in Belize. The objectives of this environmental education center are to host various cultural and environmental based student courses, workshops and event hosting in the heart of the beautiful Maya Mountains of Belize. We plan on providing our services to international students as well as providing opportunities for Belizean students.

Animal of the Week

Mat has already proposed a fun new activity today, the "UAQ", but here is another one we want to get going: the TREES Animal of the Week!

We are always finding amazing little (and sometimes big!) critters here, and we want to share them with you! Each week we will post our animal of the week, the coolest, prettiest, or downright craziest critter we've found that week.

This week's winner is the Boa Constrictor! I found this big guy (or girl) lying partly hidden in the grass in the orchard on a walk through on Monday. I know it is only Thursday but I really don't think there is any way to top this thing. It was huge, feisty, and I dragged it all the way up the super steep hill and threw it in the empty cabin so that I could get some pictures of it and surprise Mat when he came home from his trip to town! Poor boa. He was a good sport about it.

Don't worry, we let him go..........(or worry, we let him go!!)


  1. Don't wrestle with him, he'll pull the DDT on you! Old WWF references...
