Belize: Rainforest Conservation
Belize has been at the core of our Directors work for over 30 years working with NGO’s on the front line of rainforest conservation.
We are currently developing projects that support NGO’s and Private Reserves involved in the conservation of significant species such as the Jaguar, Tapir and Scarlet macaw.
Over the last 2 years we have had an extremely successful trial project in the Pooks Hill Reserve in Cayo District and have supported the local Rangers in protecting this stunning and diverse habitat.
A tracking dog and training has been deployed and is now operational, working to safeguard rangers and assist in detecting wildlife crime. The dog was donated by a charity partner Animals Saving Animals who sent a team out to train the new handlers.
We are currently engaging with other NGO's and Private Reserves in Belize in order to integrate the FDAS technologies into areas that are difficult for Rangers to monitor and patrol and to enable them to form a protected wildlife corridor to provide safe transit routes that prevent wildlife coming into conflict with humans and developments.
