    Abstract

    The Gallon Jug Estate is a 520 km2 (133,000 acres) mostly forested property in northwest Belize, Central America. It has a long history of selective logging and multiple use. This well managed, privately owned property supports seven important habitats and a healthy tropical biodiversity including many species that are threatened or endangered. In total, 552 species of herptiles, birds and mammals are documented for the Estate. Of these, eight birds, seven herptiles and 15 mammals are ranked at a level of threat above least concern (IUCN). The Gallon Jug Estate has also been the site of biodiversity research and conservation efforts, beginning first in the 1950’s, and more recently, the authors’ work spanning the past nearly 25 years. A review of the property’s physical features, geology, watersheds, climate, history and biodiversity is detailed followed by a long-term plan to monitor the Gallon Jug Estate biodiversity.
