Joy Marzolf Exotic Turneffe Atoll, Belize
Click to hide meeting description

Escape to the exotic nature of this remote tropical island chain off the coast of Belize. Beyond the second largest barrier reef in the world lies Turneffe Atoll. Away from the cruise ships of the mainland soar magnificent frigate birds and red footed boobies. Above the water, dolphins can be seen frolicking in the waves while manatees slowly cruise along feeding on sea grasses. Under the crystal clear waters are beautiful scenes of colorful reef fish and corals with even the occasional turtle or spotted eagle ray. Join us for images of this beautiful place.

Joy has loved animals from the time since she was a child growing up in New England and would always take advantage of any outdoor time to explore nature. Now, she still loves to explore, but also to share her knowledge about wildlife and nature in general. In addition to a BA in Biology, she has been doing a variety of animal-related education programs in her professional life for over 20 years. One of her favorite things to do is break people’s misconceptions about many animals, especially those that people fear, such as predators including sharks, reptiles and spiders. In addition to her live animal programs with her company The Joys of Nature (thejoysofnature.com) she is also a trip leader and naturalist for marine related trips for the Oceanic Society.
