You'll get to know jaguars, pumas, ocelots, tapirs, harpie eagles, crocodiles, howler monkeys, gibnuts, scarlet macaws, toucans, king vultures, boa constrictors, coral snakes and many more beautiful and incredible animals of Central America.
There is also the opportunity for volunteers to experience a night tour of the centre and you may enjoy exciting encounters with a jaguar and harpy eagle as part of their placement.
The Caribbean Wildlife Centre houses over 150 animals in their natural habitat, keeping only native animals of Belize which have either been orphaned, born at the centre, rehabilitated, or donated to the centre from other zoological institutions.
The centre provides the optimal level of care for these animals and is set in 29 acres of Belizean tropical savannah. They have sensitively fenced and maintained the land to ensure that the animals live in an environment as close as possible to their natural habitat.
The centre believes that by bringing the people of Belize closer to the animals which are their natural heritage, they will feel proud of these special resources, and want to protect them for future generations. They educate the local communities on how this is possible and have active education programmes in local schools.
Volunteers make a major contribution to the welfare of animals in Belize. Their time and efforts will help to care for the animals.
The centre receives visits from over 15,000 school students each year and there is always a need for passionate and energetic volunteers to help to educate the local community about their native wildlife and how to preserve the environment.
