UB Belmopan Now Has a Scooter Patrol
Professor Emeritus Clement Sankat took the opportunity today to meet two Public Safety Officers, Mr. Josiah Santos and Mr. Benedicto Cho, and their new “Scooter Patrol”. The University of Belize recently acquired two Honda Wave 110 Scooters that will be utilized to patrol the Belmopan Campus.
Professor Sankat’s hope is that this mobility will facilitate a safer and more secure environment for students, faculty and staff.

Animal Diversity Signage in UB Belmopan Campus
The UB community in the Belmopan Campus can now learn more about animals on campus after eight colourful information signage on invertebrates of the campus were placed along the walkway leading from Library towards RLC and Administration building. The signs provide information on Africanized Honey Bee, Blue Morpho Butterfly, Birding Grasshopper, Cicada, Florida Bark Scorpion, Elephant Beetle, Earthworm and Mosquitos. These are as a result of class projects done by Bachelor Biology students for the course, Natural History of Invertebrates taught by Dr. Latha Thomas. This is part of the University beautification initiative aimed at educating the community on the animal biodiversity of the campus and their importance.
Professor Emeritus Clement Sankat commends Dr. Thomas and her students for this educational and creative initiative.
Let’s Build UB Together.
