Howler Monkey Sanctuary
This is a unique conservation that protects the population and habitat of Belize’s Black Howler Monkeys, referred to as “baboons” by the locals.
On the way to the Howler Monkey Sanctuary you will pass through two Village’s one of them are called Burrell Boom which got its name from the Mahogany industry in the early 1900’s.
The other is called Scotland Half-moon which was also named after the Scottish influence that lived in the area.
Once you arrive you will be greeted by Shane or another representative and then walk through the rainforest that runs along the Belize River with Shane, who will educate you about the Howler Monkeys.
If the monkeys don’t come down to see who’s visiting on their own, the guide will call them to come and eat out of your hand.
The nice part about this tour is none of the monkeys are caged, they all live in their natural habitat but over the years Shane has built a trusting relationship with the monkeys.
As you stroll through the rainforest paths, the baby monkeys will come down and take food from your hand.
Did you know that the Howler Monkey is the 2nd loudest animals in the world?
