.Join Naturalist and Educator Joy Marzolf for Storrs Library's Around the World Nature Series for Belize: The Southern Wilds. Located in Eastern Central America, Belize shares borders with Guatemala and Mexico. From the crystal blue ocean waters and inland to the nearby mountains, it is amazingly diverse. Wildlife along the Southern coast, and nearby rivers, includes magnificent tiger herons, fast flyers like the cinnamon hummingbird and the peregrine falcon, and large swimmers like manatees and crocodiles. Traveling inland to the rainforest brings sightings of spectacular butterflies, birds, like the black headed trogon, but also mammals like the elusive jaguar and bands of coatimundi. Join us for a virtual trip to see some of the stunning wildlife of Southern Belize.
This program is part of the Nature Series with Storrs Library presented by Joy Marzolf and Wayne Sentman. This series will take place the first Tuesday of the month from September through May.
