Belize’s first Banana Festival kicked off on 15th June in San Juan Village, Stann Creek. The goal was to raise funds for four new classrooms and a face lift for some of the other buildings in the San Juan Bosco R.C. School. Fyffes Belize, BGA and several other local companies supported the event, which featured a bunch of cultural and musical shows and a “best banana dish” competition! Yummy!
Chances are that as a baby, your first finger food was a banana – possibly given to you by your loving grandparents. And when you started school, your lunchbox had a banana in it (thanks mum and dad). Then when you moved into your own place, you discovered for yourself how useful bananas were as a snack or as a cooking ingredient – and how good they were for a work-out! And before you knew it, you were watching your own baby wipe mashed banana into her hair… and the cycle began again.
Wow, Leatherback turtles can grow to 2 meters in length! But that’s only if they survive to make the mad dash to the sea as tiny hatchlings. And that’s where our Panamanian friends from COOBANA come in. They support the local conservation centre and by patrolling the beaches for several months each year, they have helped to save 12,000 eggs and safely release 8,100 baby turtles to the water.
