Ecorana employs biologists who are well-trained in tropical ecology, herpetology, and ornithology, and as such, studies in tropical biology are the primary focus of our educational holidays. However, our team’s diverse interests and expertise allow us to plan all types of holidays ranging from wildlife ecotours to yoga retreats to West African drumming courses to ecological field technique courses. 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.

Groups at T.R.E.E.S

Dear readers, I am really sorry for the lack of postings on our blog. We have been real busy with finishing up the station and acquiring all of our permits. The good news is the station is fully operational, we are now officially open and have been receiving groups.

We received the UNB tropical ecology class, followed by teaching a class for I.S.I.S. I.S.S.I.S offers a variety of courses in Belize and we host as well as teach some of their classes. Lately we hosted a Marine Ecology class, part of the course was taught by Vanessa at the Station on freshwater ecosystems and then I brought the group to the Tobacco Caye Marine Station for the second part of the course. We had a great group of students and had a great time.

Finally we received Save the Frogs, an NGO that specializes in saving frogs. Sounds funny but a multitude of frog species are not doing very well. They brought a group to Belize on a frog specific ecotour. They found 3 new species of frogs at the station.

We are pleased with our spring summer season. We are now off on a couple month tour of North America to present in Universities, Colleges and Cegeps to get new groups for the next season!

So spread the word that T.R.E.E.S is now ready to receive guests!
