We have our billboard!

New billboard
New billboard

Dear all

Finally we have made progress!!!  Thanks to your donations and support we have been able to create this amazing eye-slapping billboard for the busiest junction in Cayo at the busiest time of year.

We were lucky enough to enlist the gratis services of San Ignacio designer Glenn Patrick who put his beauty together, and then the Belmopan advertising company Impact Designs who gave us a 50% match on the cost of the vinyl. So for a grand sum of $250US plus another $200 to extend the frame outside of the clutches of the new roundabout, we ended up with an incredible banner for a fraction of the actual value of the sign. See how much you can achieve in Belize with very few $$$. 

Congrats to all of our contributors here – you have helped us to make an AMAZING difference. It's been up 5 hours and already eople are talking about it. The next evolution will be to have birds ‘flying’ off this billboard and floating around in the trees above, but that’s a whole bunch more money. One day!

Please keep the donations coming, and if you know of anyone who has a passion for environmental education in the tropics, please send them our way. We have a tonne of ideas, a willing team plus an amazing audience of Belize’s youth comprising 50% of the population, but as usual... absolutely no money :-/.

2017 theme for conservation education in Belize: “Listen to the young voices”
