Celebrate World Wildlife Day: Discover a Tropical Conservation Haven at San Ignacio Resort Hotel

World Wildlife Day

Today, March 3rd, marks World Wildlife Day, an annual celebration highlighting the importance of protecting our planet’s precious biodiversity. This year’s theme, “Connecting People and Planet: Exploring Digital Innovation in Wildlife Conservation,” underscores the power of technology in safeguarding our natural world. And in the lush tropical haven of Belize, one resort stands at the forefront of this movement: the San Ignacio Resort Hotel.

Nestled within a 17-acre private estate in the Cayo District, the San Ignacio Resort Hotel offers travelers more than just a luxurious getaway – it’s a place where wildlife conservation and ecotourism intertwine. And at the core of our conservation efforts lies their unwavering dedication to protecting an iconic and ecologically important species: the Green Iguana.

The Green Iguana Conservation Project: A Beacon of Hope


The Green Iguana Conservation Project, established by the San Ignacio Resort Hotel in 1996, has become a shining example of how we can make a tangible difference in preserving wildlife. This unique project provides a safe haven for green iguanas, working to educate, rehabilitate, and reintroduce these magnificent reptiles back into their natural habitat.

Visitors to the hotel have a rare opportunity to witness the project firsthand. The on-site project offers guided tours through our facilities, providing an up-close look at every stage of the iguana’s life cycle. Learn from passionate conservationists about the challenges these iguanas face and the crucial role the project plays in ensuring their survival.

Make your visit to the Green Iguana Conservation Project even more meaningful!

A portion of your entrance fee goes directly to Marla’s House of Hope, a local non-profit providing a safe haven for children in Belize who have been removed from abusive homes. By booking a tour, you’ll gain fascinating insights into wildlife conservation while simultaneously contributing to the well-being of Belizean children. It’s a chance to multiply the blessings – experience the wonders of the natural world and support a worthy cause.
