Belize Board Trip // February 17-21, 2018

 

We welcome you on this inaugural group trip to Corozal, under the leadership of Country Director Leonardo Pech and his small but growing team!

With operations previously in the southern districts of Belize, Sustainable Harvest International has recently expanded its influence and impact northward to the districts of Corozal and Orange Walk. The sugarcane industry and other large, conventional agricultural outfits dominate the local environment and economy. High deforestation rates coupled with increasing development make this environmentally rich and biodiverse landscape an important new focus.
