Wherever your interests lie, you can be guaranteed that Ecorana will be right there with you.Ecorana maintains values of environmental and cultural conservation and stewardship, hands-on education, and inclusive learning, and seeks to instill those values in all visitors to Belize. We work with many field stations and educational centers, scientists, educators, tour companies, tour guides, eco-lodges, and parks, both on the mainland and on the islands of Belize, to make sure you go exactly where you want to go and see exactly what you want to see and more!

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.

The work shed

It took about 6 months and three different contractors as well as work from us and the neighbours but we have finally built the work shed. This outdoor building has 5 ports in total, 2 car ports, 2 work area ports and a beautiful workshop. It is a large covered area with electricity so can work at night and when it is raining, nothing can stop us now!

Phase 1 - this phase lasted about 6 months, I had pretty much given up on the project!

Phase 2 - The roof, a good start that took lots of effort to get there! The tractor was happy at least!

 Phase 3 - Finally the completed shed, includes electricity, rain water collection cistern, and tool shop. A great spot to work in the rain, a place to put all of the lumber and the vehicles! Awesome!!!
