The Belize government approved a plan in February 2018 to create a 110-square-kilometer biological corridor connecting two nature reserves in the northeast of the country. This outcome resulted from collaboration among NGOs, the government and private property owners. The latter agreed to conserve (to not deforest or otherwise degrade) the parts of their land that would become part of the wildlife corridor. In exchange, the government would not collect taxes on this land. This corridor, which was initiated in the context of the larger Mesoamerican Biological Corridor project, is meant to protect jaguars, cougars and tapirs, among other wildlife.
