OPPORTUNITIES FOR WORK EXPERIENCE WITH ANTILLEAN MANATEES IN BELIZE
Do you want to play an active part in manatee rehabilitation and conservation in Belize – to make a difference?
Are you looking for hands-on work with manatee rehabilitation to build your capacity and experience in this field?
Are you willing to put in long days of wet, muddy manatee care, with a one month minimum commitment?
Wildtracks, a Belize non-profit conservation organization, has been managing the Manatee Rehabilitation Centre in Belize since 1999 in partnership with Belize's government Wildlife Programme, as a tool towards fulfilling Belize's commitments to preventing species extinctions. We have high levels of success in rearing neonate orphaned calves, and in returning both injured and orphaned manatees to the wild – success that cannot be achieved without the care provided to the rehabilitation animals by our incredibly committed team of Wildtracks volunteers.
We have volunteer placements available from October 2018 onwards, and have subsidised placements available for capacity building for regional participants (Mexico / Central America).
if you are interested, contact Alysha McGrattan at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an application form.
