Monkey Bay is a not-for-profit education and training center established in 1990. Their mission is to provide academic, experiential learning, and service programs while serving as a model of conservation land Stewardship in Belize. Educational and adventure activities at the sanctuary include: birding, canoeing, swimming, caving and evening campfire drumming. The organisation continues to preserve a large corridor of land between two protected nature reserves. Andrew first visited Belize, aged 18, to work on a Government funded conservation project to protect the 2nd largest Barrier Reef in the world and the associated coral atolls. He has also previously volunteered with The British Conservation Volunteers over the UK. Rath marine.

You’ve got lovely sandy coasts and one hour away you’ve got pine forests and rolling rivers.” All funds raised will go to Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary to help pay for board and lodgings for volunteers, and cover costs for the projects they are working on.
