You may have read about Hurricane Richard hitting Belize while we were there last month. Our place in the sourthern part of Belize escaped Richard's wrath, but the northern part of Belize was not so fortunate. The Belize Zoo was hit especially hard. To those of you who usually give me a Christmas present, please donate to the zoo instead. You can do it on a link on the blog site above.
A little over a year ago, we went on a night tour of the zoo that was wonderful. You can see my blog account of the visit here. The Zoo is (was) one of those very special places and I admit I cried when I saw the photos of the devastation. Dennis and I are giving what we can to help; it would be such a loss to Belize and to the world if this little gem of a zoo doesn't recover.
