Programme for Belize currently administers the Río Bravo Management and Conservation Area in northern Belize, which includes a high percentage of wetlands.

Its activities include protection and surveillance in the protected zone, ecotourism, community education, sustainable forest management, timber and non-timber products, carbon sequestration, conservation of birds and archeology. This last is very important since the area contains Mayan archeological sites, such as the well-known La Milpa from the pre-classical Mayan period (440 BC - 250 AD), which are under continual exploration.

Sixty more archeological sites have been discovered in the area, and more are constantly being found.
