On Belize's Sittee River, a green iguana poised to spring regards the camera from the corner of its eye. Home to the Western Hemisphere's longest coral reef and hundreds of acres of deciduous, evergreen, swamp, and mangrove forests, Belize is among the richest habitats on Earth, supporting wildlife such as tapirs, jaguars, pumas, crocodiles, turtles, and hundreds of species of birds and amphibians.
