According to Doctor Elma Kay, the terrestrial science director for the Environmental Research Institute at UB, the aim of the plan is to engage all stakeholders to work together in order to ensure the long term maintenance of the Central Belize Corridor.

DR. ELMA KAY
"The Central Belize Corridor is an area in central Belize that actually connects our 2 largest forest blocks in the country. The first of these blocks is the northern block that includes the Rio Bravo, the Gallon Jug and the Yalbac Forest and the Central Belize Corridor connects us to the Mayan mountain in the south. A corridor is basically an area that permits the movements of animals and just like people, animals need to be able to mix genetically and continue moving through a landscape and the corridor facilitates this. This is what allows us to have a lot of healthy populations of animals like game animals that people like to eat or jaguars which we know is a big part of our tourism industry; for that the importance of the corridor and the idea of initiating this process of management action planning is basically to bring all stakeholders in the area including communities, private land owners, NGO'S, government officials academia to together form a vision for the maintenance of this corridor and central Belize is an area that is developing very fast especially in the agriculture sector. So the idea is to engage everyone in that
