Up until the 1970s, Belize, formerly British Honduras, had relatively relaxed environmental laws that went largely unenforced.
However, with the formation of the Belize Audubon Society in 1969, public awareness of the value of conservation grew rapidly.
After gaining independence in 1981, the government passed both the National Park System Act and the Wildlife Protection Act, designating an array of protected areas of different status, and providing a codification for the protection of the immense biodiversity of life contained in the parks.
Roughly 26% (2.6 million acres, or 1.22 million hectares) of Belizean land and sea is preserved within a total of 95 reserves, which vary in their purpose and level of protection.
