230,000 Acres of Tropical Rainforest Protected as Biodiversity Hotspot For Jaguars in Belize
Reprinted from Good News Network website...

Now that dream is a reality, with more than a dozen organizations coming together to protect 236,000 acres of land that represents an irreplaceable linchpin in the conservation of the largest remaining tropical forests in the Americas, outside the Amazon.
