Howlers, Toucans and Kinkajous, Oh My!
Arriving at the Raleigh-Durham airport at 5am, we did not know the spectacular day that awaited us. Two short flights later we arrived in Belize, and after meeting our Belizean teachers Yolanda and Consuelo, and our guide Nathan Forbes and bus driver Bruce, we hit the ground running.
First stop was the Community Baboon Sanctuary. This one-of-a-kind area was created by landowners voluntarily leaving forested areas for habitat and specific food plants for the Black Howler Monkeys.
