Attempting to capture the beauty of Belize through words and photographs
Ethical + sustainable lifestyle blogger Zandra Thomson from Life With Zandra joins the TREE podcast to talk about the recent vegan-themed TREE trip that she participated in. She joins host Jordan Flagel, the leader of the vegan Belize trip, to share their experiences in the jungle and talk about what these trips teach about sustainability, as well as how they contribute to conservation. The two discuss wildlife sightings, the oil and gas industry, and what it was like going vegan for the entirety of a trip where barbecue reigns supreme.

The first TREE trip of the 2017/2018 season was an unforgettable one!
We trekked up mountains, climbed up ruins, tubed down rivers, slid down natural waterslides, jumped off waterfalls, partied with locals, and swam with the fishes - but we also learned a lot about the protected areas we visited, discussed sustainability practices nightly, identified over fifty species of flora and fauna, improved our jungle skills, and experienced real Belizean culture.
