IZE specializes in coordinating faculty led, study abroad programs that reveal the magnificence and beauty of our planet's most rare and unique habitats! We have been the pioneer of educational expeditions in Belize since 1970, focusing on the biology of the rainforest and coral reefs. Our mission is to provide colleges, universities, natural history organizations, families, and adventures alike with an affordable, worry free, once in a lifetime adventure!
A UNIQUE REEF EXPERIENCE!
IZE's marine field station and lodge is located on South Water Caye, a private
12-acre island paradise, surrounded by uninhabited mangrove islands, sea-grass flats, and pristine coral reefs. The undisturbed natural conditions, along with the diverse habitats and abundant levels of marine life, make South Water Caye one of the finest outdoor classrooms in the Caribbean!
A UNIQUE RAINFOREST EXPERIENCE!
Nestled on the banks of Blue Creek is IZE's private rainforest preserve and wildlife sanctuary. It is the only field station of its kind, located in a true primary rainforest! Inhabited by thousands of intriguing organisms, Blue Creek's biodiversity is incomparable. It is the ideal place to observe and interact with an untouched and complex jungle ecosystem full of Belize’s finest flora and fauna.
