US Capital Energy is preparing to drill for oil in an effort to exploit and export the rich geological resources of Belize for their own financial gain. An exploration permit was granted to US Capital Energy in 2001, renewed in 2007 and a new permit is currently under review by the Government of Belize on land that was declared by the Supreme Court of Belize to be Maya Homeland.

Southern Belize is home to 38 Maya communities who live in traditional wood and thatch dwellings and follow traditional sustainable agricultural methods to feed their families.
