• The entrance to the Belize TREC facility


A Message From the Directors


Do you conduct classes with a field component in the Caribbean?  Would you like to?  We make it easy for the novice or seasoned field professor.  Consider our Program.  You will not find a more pristine coral reef ecosystem in the Caribbean than that of the Belize Barrier Reef.

Belize TREC offers competitive rates and a professional staff.  Our location in Northern Belize has one third the number of rainy days you would find in the south.

Easy access to the town of San Pedro with Medical Doctors and a recompression chamber make this one of the safest of Field Stations.  Our 50 foot research vessel is equipped with classroom, galley, head, etc.

We will do as much or as little as you desire.  Available to you are lectures (see list), lab assistance, team field assistance (2-3 additional in water guides), help in planning trip, travel arrangements, travel discounts, custom itinerary and if you can think of anything we missed – just ask.

Dr. Kenneth C. Mattes & Maureen Gannon
