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.

Stairway to compound

The morning before Chris's flight home we started working at 6h00 am with the guys to get the base of the stairway from the cabins area to the main building. We managed to get the stair trusses in for the top stairway and the foundations of the decks built. Then we jumped in the truck and drove like mad to Belize City, so they could catch their plane.

The week after Vanessa and I and the guys finished up the 2 stairways, the multiple decks and gate to the lower part of the center. The stairs look awesome and the decks allow visitors to stop at a couple of areas to look at the mountains, do some bird watching and just enjoying the view! The top deck gives us another location to hang out at the end of a hard day!
