There shall be established a body to be called the Protected Areas Conservation Trust.


Encourage and promote, for the benefit and enjoyment of the present and future generations of the people of Belize.


Established by Legislative ACT in the 1996, the purpose of the TRUST continues to be guided by legislation. As Conservationism has evolved so too has PACT’s legislation been adapted to meet new responsibilities and opportunities. The original PACT ACT and subsequent revisions detail the TRUST’s purpose and scope and are available for review below.
