July 2017 – Omar Figueroa, the Belizean Minister of Agriculture, Fishing, Forestry, Environment, and Sustainable Development, performed the official opening ceremony. In an area covering 32,300 Ft2, visitors will be able to explore the largest indoor mangrove in the world.
The mangrove is the natural habitat of charismatic species such as manatees, fiddler crabs, butterflies, birds, and fish. The astonishing landscape at Burgers’ Mangrove is covered by a domed structure towering 16 meters above the ground at its tallest point.
The project utilizes Speck Pumps products to circulate the water on the Freshwater and Saltwater portions of the exhibit.
