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 and the new year

Sorry for the long wait between postings, we are postings more and more of our updates on facebook at we are getting a much higher reader reach. We had a very successful winter so far with 3 back to back groups in December January. The hard work is finally paying off! We still need to find sometime to do more all important marketing, particularly to Belize Tour Companies and Canadian ecotour companies that are looking for somewhere fun and safe to bring their groups. We have more and more activities being offered at T.R.E.E.S including river tubing, waterfall rappelling, night walks, birding tours. We have also completed our internship programs and our currently hosting a few interns at the station.

These are some pictures of the last group we had from I.S.I.S! This was a Marine Biology course that Vanessa and I currently teaching. We took the group out around the station but also at Five Blues Lake National Park. The students had never experienced the jungle before and where a little overwhelmed at first but by the end of it, everyone was very happy.
