The 13.3 million-acre Maya forest that spans Belize, the northern Petén in Guatemala, and Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula is the second largest rainforest in the western hemisphere. With over 400 species of birds it offers critical habitat for winter migrants and its diverse ecosystems provide protected havens for rare and endangered species.
