The Belize Wildlife Referral Clinic is celebrating 3 years of being open and providing free care to the wildlife of Belize. They are getting ready for their 2nd annual Gala Fundraiser, which will be on November 21st. They have a great video out about their vision and mission which really shows how much they care about Belize's wildlife.
"Our menu will feature 'Reef and Beef' including once again the serious but also scrumptious threat to our reef - lionfish. Julian Sherrard has kindly agreed to be this years MC. We continue to receive amazing donations for this years silent auction (check out clinic FB for some images). The ticket price will be 85Bz. We hope you will join us for a lovely dinner with Silent Auction and Entertainment, in support of BWRC's free medical and rehabilitation services for imperilled wildlife and conservation organisations."
BWRC Introduction - Vision, mission and activities
Here finally the official introduction of the Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic. We registered as a non-profit organisation in Belize in December 2011 and we could not have succeeded without the support of many. But since many people do not know we exist and what services we offer to benefit Belizean wildlife and people, we wanted to introduce our mission, vision and what is is we do and share some patients images and stories with this video. Thank you Daniel Velasquez for another excellent video and Tammy M Tate for excellent narration!

The Belize Wildlife and Referral Clinic (BWRC) is a registered non- profit animal welfare organization that operates country-wide in Belize. BWRC provides free medical care to injured, orphaned, neglected or otherwise imperiled wildlife. Medical care is provided at their veterinary clinic in Central Farm, Cayo District, by their staff of veterinarians and technicians. Wildlife patients are treated at BWRC, where they may undergo medical treatment and possibly rehabilitation prior to being returned to the wild.
The founder, Dr Isabelle Paquet Durand, is a Wildlife Veterinarian who has provided pro-bono care to wildlife for 20 years, 13 of those in Belize. BWRC is the only Wildlife Veterinary Clinic in Belize and the only veterinary clinic with x-ray and gas anesthesia machines. BWRC caters to both domestic and Wildlife patients, with the main focus on wildlife. Since 2012, BWRC has seen approximately 500 wildlife patients from all over the country.
