Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since 2001, the Oceanic Society Field Station at Blacbird Caye on Turneffe Atoll, Belize has serves as an active platform for exploration of the Mesoamerican reef ecosystem. Hundreds of researchers, students, vacationers, and volunteers from around the world have come here to enjoy, study, and protect the area's outstanding biodiversity. Blackbird Caye is on the eastern edge of Turneffe Atoll, the largest and most biodiverse coral atoll in the Western Hemisphere. 25 miles east of Belize City and surrounded by deep oceanic waters, Turneffe is home to an array of unique and threatened species like sea turtles, manatees, crocodiles, dolphins, tropical fish, and birds, and diverse habitats that include coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds, littoral forests, and brackish lagoons. As a traveler or volunteer at the Oceanic Society Blackbird Caye Field Station, you will gain unique access and insight into the local ecology. We offer a variety of travel programs for individuals and families, whether you are looking to explore the reefs, or to volunteer to work side by side with our researchers. Come along and enjoy this outstanding area while contributing to its protection through our conservation-focused research. The field station is situated directly on the beach within 11.5 acres of protected land. One of the healthiest reefs in Belize is just offshore. Accommodations are in six simple beachfront cabanas, each with a porch and private bath. There is a large thatch-roofed "palapa" that functions as a communal dining and lounge area. Three vessels are available for excursions and for transfers to/from Belize City. ... more   less
