In partnership, the Belize Tourism Industry Association (BTIA), Belize Audubon Society (BAS), and the Belize Hotel Association (BHA) comprise the organizing partners of the annual Belize Birding Festival. In 2018, the 1st Annual Belize Birding Festival saw over 200 local and international guests; they attended the day’s workshops, presentations, birding activities, and cocktail hour. However if resorts have an on-site tour guide or front desk person, this is a great opportunity to build their capacity and explore the growing niche market of Bird Tourism in Belize. At a glance? Over 30,000 persons visited Belize in 2018 for birding alone (BTB, 2019). And that figure is expected to grow!

The 2nd Annual Belize Birding Festival was held at San Ignacio Resort Hotel in Cayo; read their recap here.
