Summary

The National Museum of Natural History's rebuilt marine field station on Carrie Bow Cay in Belize is a 2,400 square foot facility replacing the structures destroyed by a fire in 1997. Smithsonian scholars study the biological richness of the coral reefs and mangrove swamps of Belize. The area is ideal for researchers because it is highly diverse in habitat types and plant and animal species.
