Expeditions With Patrick McMillan

Belize, A Land Of Resilience

Season 2, Episode 2 of 13

Belize is the smallest country in Central America both in size and population. Nearly 75% of the forests here still stand. But this place has been impacted by man for thousands of years and despite that it still harbors incredible diversity. 1200 years ago there may have been over 3 million people in Belize, today there are only slightly over 300,000. The wildlife managed to survive and many of the species have a seldom noticed connection to man. Even species we enjoy here like neotropical migrant songbirds depend on what happens in Belize. Join Patrick as he explores Central America's last best chance, Belize, a land of resilience.
