End of the year report 2021

End of the Year Report 2021!

Greetings from Guatemala,

ARCAS continues to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic and its consequences. The rate of infections has dropped and the government has lifted most of the restrictions on travel, but masks are still mandatory.

 

Despite a lack of volunteers, we continue to receive and treat rescued wild animals. The wild animals of Guatemala and the poachers and traffickers that prey on them don’t pay attention to pandemics.  

Wildlife releases 2021:

In 2021, we released a total of 50 animals, both in Hawaii, Peten and in the Guatemala City area.  These include:

 

2 jaguarundis

1 tamandua

24 Moreleti crocodiles

3 tepezcuintles 

5 racoons

3 barn owls

2 acorn woodpeckers

1 Keel-billed toucans

4 Ferriginous owls

2 coatimundis

3 opossum

 

We are finishing up the sea turtle season now, and hope to report on our egg collection and hatchling releases in Hawaii by the end of the year.  We also continue with our sea turtle population monitoring at 7 index beachs and will be reporting on that in early 2022.  



We just finished with our participation in the Parrot Festival, which we carried out as a member of the regional network, Loros Sin Frontera, which aims to reduce demand for the poaching and purchase of parrots throughout Mexico and Central America.  You can find more information about this activity at www.lorossinfronteras.com   



Your generous donation has helped us keep our rescue centers running by purchasing food and veterinary medicines for the animals. We continue in crisis mode, looking for alternative sources of income to pay staff and feed animals and have been focusing our efforts on on-line fundraising, especially GlobalGiving, and this has helped to fill in some of the gaps.  

 

 

For the upcoming Giving Tuesday 30.11. we have submitted a new project for funds for our Rescue an Conservation Centres in Guatemala. Please keep supporting ARCAS!

 

In addition to donating directly to our projects, GlobalGiving allows our supporters and ex-volunteers to create their own fundraising pages to invite their networks to support ARCAS’s wildlife conservation efforts, so if you can help in this way, let us know.  Celebrate your birthday, run a race, or start an employee competition — there are many ways you can help us through this crisis!

Now that we are a 501c3 non-profit organization in the US, we have joined AmazonSmile.  If you could help us by choosing ARCAS as your charity, we would appreciate it. Same products, same prices, same service.  AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to ARCAS at no extra cost to you. 

Also, you can help by becoming an ARCAS monthly donor.  You can do this via GlobalGiving.  Recurring donors – even for small donations – are especially helpful as these are resources that we can count on from month-to-month to help us continue our work.   

Thanks very much for your support for our wildlife conservation activities in Guatemala, especially in these times of crisis.  Your donation helps us continue our efforts to save the wild ones of the earth.
