Avian Nursery and Quarantine Facility
 
A purpose built facility for the rehabilitation of water-birds, parrots and songbirds will enable Belize Bird Rescue to better assist Forest Department with its enforcement efforts, and help other organisations and members of the public with their conservation efforts. Belize Bird Rescue is Belize's only avian rescue, rehabilitation and release facility. project reportread updates from the field
Education and awareness: Birds in Belize!
 
The youth are consumers, voters and policy makers of the future. Sadly some are also destined to become the poachers and traffickers of tomorrow. The overstretched education system in Belize has little capacity for environmental education and many communities have a tradition of trading parrots as a means of support. Our goal is to instil empathy for wild parrots and all bird species and suggest environmentally sustainable means of generating income from the lucrative tourism industry. project reportread updates from the field
Help keep Belize Bird Rescue up and running
 
Funds from this project will feed the 170 former-captive parrots in our long-term release programme, rehabilitate the 250+ birds we receive annually, and help with running costs. As the only avian rescue and rehabilitation centre in Belize, our facility provides the mechanism for the Belizean Government's Forest Department to effectively enforce the wildlife laws that govern the illegal pet trade, and rehabilitates for release any orphaned, injured or sick birds. project reportread updates from the field
