Inspiration in Action for Wildlife Conservation
OMG Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic is in the final for the contest! I rub my eyes and can not believe it. „Inspiration in Action“ is truly an awesome title for this and, believe it or not, the first grant proposal for a project that has been in my head for over 15 years. But how did I get there?

What I love about my work in wildlife rescue and conservation is that there is nothing usual about it. I never know what might happen the next day or moment and there is rarely any routine. Of course, I have to admit that that is very challenging sometimes too. But most times it keeps things interesting and exciting!

Wildlife conflicts and the story of Amy the keel-billed toucan fledgling – Part 1. Close proximity often leads to conflict. I will soon write a „proper“ article on the notorious human-wildlife conflict, for Belizean newspapers and magazines and I might share it on this blog, as that, once again, is a whole big subject in itself.
