barrier1Come join our Belize Island Resort for an epic Belize Vacation Package! Guests from across the globe rave about our luxurious accommodations and marvel at our Ocean wonders! Learn more about the area as explained by Tierney Thys, National Geographic Expedition Leader, Marine Biologist and Filmmaker.

The National Geographic Expedition groups travel to the ends of the earth to places where the guests can experience cultural tours, safaris and journeys to the world’s most astonishing places. This year we are proud to know that the trip to Blackbird Caye Resort was the #1 expedition booked and the #1 to sell out of all the student expeditions offered worldwide.

Teirney found the area of Turneffe Atoll to be an excellent balance between an aquatic resource for first timers as well as for experts alike. She also explains that the area is rich in adventure and that the pristine waters and bountiful marine at Blackbird Caye Resort create the perfect conditions for many species to survive and thrive in these waters. As a marine biologist she feels ecstatic seeing the youth wanting to get involved in learning how to help in the preservation of the ocean and how they want to understand more about its importance in relation to our existence on earth. It is through further understanding of the ocean and marine life that we can ensure it will remain a resource for future generations.

We are all aware that not only climate changes affect our oceans but that there are other problems offsetting its balance such as pollution, acidification, lack of fish, desertification, and global warming, but Teirney found the area where our Belize Resort is to be a shot of adrenaline to a previously dismal outlook. The area of Turneffe where Blackbird Caye Resort is located plays home to many ocean studies and research. There are routine reef audits, dolphin research by the Oceanic Society, and many more projects aimed at preserving our natural resources. Belize is playing an important role by taking ownership & pride in being part of the solution for conserving the World’s Oceans for future generations. The ocean is the vascular system of the Earth and brings life to all of its inhabitants. Turneffe, Belize has been making excellent progress with coral coverage and we have tracked reduction in the algae population from previous levels. This progress is bringing new hope to Belize and is a model for other oceanic communities.

The staff and dive masters at Blackbird Caye Resort are professional and highly knowledgeable. Their level of expertise provided the expedition group leaders of these expeditions with a break so they could enjoy the area and relax while the students discover an amazing world underneath all its beauty. Blackbird Caye Resort is located in one of the most amazing natural habitats in the world and provides divers with endless wonders to enjoy.
