Nurture Belize aims to encourage fundraising for national campaigns and local projects.
Nurture Belize encourages local partners and stakeholders to focus locally on projects or initiatives that need to raise funding quickly in order to safeguard a particular species, environment or protected area from imminent threat. Raising funds to help protect the main nesting site of Belize’s Scarlet Macaws would be an example of a campaign, fighting to protect deforestation whether inland or coastal would be another. Nurture Belize is happy to provide visibility to partners and their fundraising campaigns.
Campaigns that we’re highlighting as examples
The Last Flight of Belize’s Scarlet Macaws?
Raising funding for additional National Park Rangers to protect the nesting site of Belize’s Scarlet Macaws. With less than 100 breeding pairs of Macaws left in the wild and one of only two viable breeding populations left in northern Central America action must be swiftly taken to stop poaching if we’re to avert a population collapse and species extinction.
Belize’s Scarlet Macaws desperately need your help. See an image slide show of the trail of destruction left by the xateros (Guatemalan’s who illegally cut the Xate palm leaves for export to florists in the US and Europe), poachers who illegally enter Belize to steal Scarlet Macaw chicks and illegal loggers who target high value mahogany and cedar trees.
