Bird Decking

This nature trail meanders through the pine savannah over boardwalks and seasonal ponds and streams. Learn about the ecology and importance of Belize's savanna ecosystem, and witness some of the wildlife found in this unique habitat, like the endangered yellow headed parrots, armadillos, agouti and grey fox. You may even come across the paw print of the elusive jaguar!

B) Birding -

Over 220 bird species have been sighted at the TEC in locations such as near the pond, along our savannah trails, and even just around our parking lot!
