Volunteer in the San Ignacio Hospital; Rural Clinics

Volunteer in the rural health clinics and outreach programs that serve the underprivileged communities surrounding San Ignacio, Belize. Members of these communities often lack access to adequate health education, qualified medical professionals, and treatment resources. Prices for medical services and resources are high in Belize, but wages remain low. These clinics are staffed by advanced nurses or community health personnel who provide a variety of services including home visits and other outreach programs.

Avian Rehabilitation Internship

A rare opportunity to work with indigenous Amazon parrots liberated from the illegal pet trade, as well as all species of wild birds found in Belize. Parrot rehabilitation for release can take up to 2 years and involves dedicated efforts in diet, nutrition, flock-building, husbandry and enclosure maintenance. Interns will live on site in a home-stay environment and be expected to contribute to all aspects of the rehabilitation process for every species at the centre, including barn owls and other raptors, pelicans, toucans and many passerine species. Belize is an English speaking country.
