Who doesn’t dream of exploration and inspiration? While we can’t always see the world personally, we can still all experience the wonders of the world virtually, and in the process, making a difference in the world.
We have chosen our virtual tour partners because they have inspired US, they have made US think differently about the world around US. We want to share that inspiration with YOU. If we can inspire YOU, we can make this world a better place for all of US.
So let us be your guide on an exploration of some of the wonders of the world. Our current destination is Belize. We have spent over a decade bringing groups to this amazing little country. From the rainforests, to the coral reefs, to Mayan ruins, the country and people of Belize have inspired us. And now we want to do the same for you.
Ready to take an EdVenture? Well, that is what we do. So let US take YOU on a journey.
Here are a few of our current virtual offerings.
The Belize Zoo
The Belize Zoo, also known as the Best Little Zoo in the World, is so much more than a Zoo. Widely recognized as a leading center of biodiversity conservation in Belize, the Zoo is populated by its animal “ambassadors”, all of which have a story and lesson on why this country is important.
These interactive tours will be led by an education specialist at the Belize Zoo who specializes in the wildlife conservation efforts of the Zoo. These tours, which can last for between 45 and 75 minutes in length, will feature the native wildlife of Belize. During the tour, you will be encouraged to ask lots of questions! Depending on the time of the tour, we can usually see spider monkeys, tapirs, jaguars and a variety of bird species. There is usually a surprise around each bend in the path!
We can offer both day and night tours of the Zoo. So to learn more about the Belize Zoo Live! Tours, click on the button below or visit us at inspire-edventures.com/belize-zoo-live/
Tobacco Caye Marine Station and the Coral Reefs of Belize
If you are looking for something a little closer to the water, consider our recently-added virtual tour of the amazing coral reefs of Belize.
These interactive tours will be led by an education specialist at the Tobacco Caye Marine Station who specializes in marine conservation. These tours, which can last for between 45 and 75 minutes in length, will feature not only an exploration of the diversity of the coral reefs, but also a discussion of some of the threats to this important ecosystem. During the tour, you will be encouraged to ask lots of questions! Depending on the time of the tour, we can usually see sharks, sea turtles, numerous species of coral, and a variety of tropical fish species.

Belize Raptor Center
We are very pleased to announce our newest partnership for virtual tours – The Belize Raptor Center! Located outside of San Ignacio Belize, the Raptor Center is the center for bird of prey conservation and education in Central America. For years we have been bringing student groups to the Center for live performances, and that is why we are so thrilled to be able to bring these amazing birds and their caretakers to your group virtually!
These tours feature the amazing hawks, kites, owls and vultures of Central America. Learn about their biology, ecology, and conservation efforts from the experts.
Who Are These Tours For?
Anyone! We have organized virtual tours for any age or interest group. We have offered tours for student groups as diverse as elementary school “field trips” to college biology courses. We can also organize tours for your community group or workplace. We have worked with major corporations bo build tours for corporate retreats, employee appreciation events, and even as part of symposia. Recently we have presented at retirement communities, and this summer, we are beginning a our partnerships with summer camps!
We are teachers, and we are confident that we can make our tours match your curriculum or program’s needs.
