Challenge

BBR must be mobile: we are one of only two organisations in the whole country that provide a 24hr countrywide wildlife rescue service. Last month the engine on our trusty old Ford truck finally gave up on life. It is time to say goodbye... We are currently using a very expensive V8 SUV, and with gas at over $5 US a gallon, it's simply not possible to maintain our level of service in the rescue team for much longer

Solution

There are many used vehicles available in Belize that will provide a suitable, economic replacement for around $10,000 US. We are also looking for a local sponsor to help with this project - we will update you know as soon as we find one.

Long-Term Impact

BBR, along with Belize Animal Rescue carries out practically all of the wildlife rescue and transportation in Belize. Acquiring a new vehicle will allow BBR to continue rescuing and releasing birds and animals, and transporting patients for medical care, transfers and releases for a very long time to come.
