Maya Mountain Campus: An hour's drive from San Ignacio Town, Maya Mountain Headwater Field Station is tucked away within an enclave of private land within the uninhabited 106,000-acre Mountain Pine Ridge (MPR) Forest Reserve. The MPR is the headwater region for multiple watersheds and a richly diverse location for upland and headwater ecology studies.
The underlying geological formations of granite bedrock and overlying limestone deposits of the Maya Mountains form the oldest landmass in Central America, covered by Caribbean Pine forest. Along with the many nature trails and remarkable destinations of natural history interest, the waterfalls, steep-gradient first and second order streams, cascades and pools over smooth granite make this a bird watching, rock-hopping, hikers and swimmers paradise.
Tobacco Caye Marine Station: Tobacco Caye is one of the few islands that are situated directly on the Belize Barrier Reef. This makes Tobacco Caye an ideal location for study and research of the marine environment, as access to the reef and its associated habitats are easily accessible from the shore of the island with more diverse habitats a short boat ride away.
