Interim update - new wheels are coming!

Dear all,

I know it’s only a month since our last report, but we want to take this opportunity to give you a brief update on the latest exciting happening for our ‘Up and Running’ project.  For the whole month of September Belize Bird Rescue has had the honour of being GlobalGiving’s Project of the Month. As you may know, we have had several disasters with our 2 old vehicles: one needs a complete new engine and the other is only just limping along and is super-expensive to run, so the money from the project of the Month Club is hopefully going to get us back up and driving! Thank you so much to the project of the month donors for their amazing contribution and to GlobalGiving for choosing us out of all of the excellent causes and projects out there. And of course, huge thanks to all of YOU – our regular supporters who have helped to swell the donation from the Club and make our goal more achievable. Once we have the disbursement in Belize we will be shopping for the perfect vehicle that has the best bang for our buck. Watch this space!

Since our last report, we have had the joy of releasing as additional 5 olive-throated parakeets and 4 white-fronted amazons into the wild groups around the Centre, plus 15 yellowheaded amazons who were all older ex-pets and so habituated when they came to us that we never thought they could be released. Thank goodness they are proving us wrong.

Finally, in case you wondering, we managed to escape the devastation of the hurricanes so far this season. We know an awful lot of our fellow conservationists on many Caribbean Islands were not quite so lucky, and our heart goes out to them. Believe me, we know how they feel. There but for the grace of God go us.

So thank you once again and we will be in touch hopefully with photos of our wonderful new rescue vehicle!

Warm regards,

Nikki and the BBR Team
