This book teaches you about our environment and the wealth of our natural resources, both renewable and non-renewable, not just with science but also from the eyes of a biologist, archaeologist, geologist, and much more. The DOE, through this book, is responding to a need from the Belizean public for a clear picture of the wealth of our resources and its function in our daily lives through our economy, social, and cultural makeup. It also offers insight into the potential threats to our natural resources, both from a local perspective through pollution to our local environment and on a global level with the impacts of climate change; and the changes which we can make to prevent and adapt to those threats. It is the DOE's hope that all who read "Wealth Untold" gains a greater appreciation and understanding of our precious natural resources, and the pressures and challenges that we as citizens face in ensuring that this natural heritage is there for future generations.
To meet the needs of schools and the public in accessing updated and accurate information, the DOE is currently in the process of revising and updating Wealth Untold. When this revision is completed, we will be making it available to the public.
