We need hands-on help with raising baby birds, feeding, cleaning and husbandry of long-term rehab birds, assistance with clinic work, planting food crops, fundraising and public awareness, admin to include record keeping, social media updates, grant writing, report writing etc.
We need help all year round, but the busy baby season is between April and October
The intern accommodation is a 2-bed house with living room and kitchen. Interns are guaranteed their own bed, but not necessarily their own room. We provide the ingredients to make basic breakfast and lunch, and provide a cooked evening meal (or the ingredients to make one). Transfer to and from the airport is provided.
We are in desperate need of a fundraiser and/or grant writer. This work can be done from a distance and all information necessary to complete a good application will be provided. We work with several endangered species and have project partners so several traditional grant-seeking parameters are fulfilled
We work with the Government of Belize and other conservation organisation in education and awareness, rehabilitation, rescue & release, monitoring and protection of all avian species. We assist with the enforcement and application of the ongoing captive parrot licence programme. We provide a rehab for release and sanctuary for confiscated and surrendered (ex-pet) parrots. We hand-raise for release endangered yellowhead chicks identified as 'at risk' by conservation organisations at nest sites. We work with all bird species: passerine, waterbirds, raptors, owls and parrots. From the smallest hummingbird to the largest jabiru stork and everything in between. We provide bird-life conservation education in schools and communities with our outreach booth and in-school presentations. We carry out our own rescues, we have an on-site clinic for non-invasive medical care and we grow our own food (animal and vegetable!)
$25US per day to include accommodation and food
We are the only multi-species rescue, rehabilitation and release centre in the country. We work closely with the Government's Forest Department to control the illegal trade in wild-caught parrots. We have been fully operational since 2006
