Reliable transportation at BBR is a lifeline for birds in need all over Belize. Unfortunately our only vehicle is almost beyond repair and we desperately need to replace it with something reliable that will last us for years to come.
We have been fortunate to extend the life on our last vehicle but it is no longer a reliable form of transportation to continue our work around the country. As the only multi-species avian rescue and rehabilitation center in Belize it is imperative we are able to reach those in need.
A new (or new to us!) vehicle will allow us to meet the needs of wildlife around the country while also saving much needed funds for other purposes. A more cost efficient newer vehicle will also help with the very high fuel costs in Belize and drastically reduce maintenance expenses. More importantly it will allow us to continue our 24 hour countrywide rescue service!
Reliable transportation will allow us to continue our work and expand even more. A BBR truck serves many functions besides rescues, releases and vet trips. It provides a way to reach nests and to forage for fruits. It is a transport for birds along with other animals in need from monkeys to tapirs! We use it on property to haul supplies, food and more. It allows us to assist the police & forest departments in confiscations, travel to educate children and is truly a lifeline to the community.
